It is part of the Springfield, Missouri Metropolitan Statistical Area.HistoryThe area was first settled by farmers who located their farms along the wooded streams near present-day Nixa. The area became a crossroads as it was a half-day ride with a team of horses from Springfield. Teamsters found it a convenient stopover site when hauling freight between Springfield and Arkansas. The village became known as Faughts. An early resident, Nicholas A. Inman, was a blacksmith from Tennessee who set up a shop in 1852. When a post office was opened, a town meeting was held to decide on a name for the new community. Because of his years of service to the community it was suggested the town be named for him. Another suggestion was "nix" because the community was "nothing but a crossroads". It was finally decided to take the name Nix and add Inman's middle initial "a" to get the unique name of Nixa. The village incorporated on June 10, 1902.GeographyNixa is located at . According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 8.48sqmi, all of it land.
