Luray, Missouri
Population: 99


“The source of the name Luray is obscure; according to the State Historical Society of Missouri most likely it is Native American in origin. A post office called Luray has been in operation since 1841. After 170 years in operation, the Luray office closed on November 4, 2011.”
