De Soto Attractions

De Soto was a stop on the St. Louis Iron Mountain Railroad and a depot was built in 1859. Like other depots, the city grew because of it. Three major railroads have come through the town of De Soto, first it was the St. Louis Iron Mountain and Southern, then the Missouri Pacific, and now the Union Pacific. The railroad has played a major role in the town's history and still does so today with the Union Pacific's freight car shop being the biggest employer in the city. Because of the importance of the railroad to De Soto, the Railroad Employee's Memorial was established in downtown De Soto to honor all railroad employees, past, present and future.
