Orrick is a town in Ray County, Missouri, United States. The population was 799 at the 2010 census.

History[edit]

The first community in the area was Albany when it was established by Ely Carter in 1854. When he applied for a Post Office it was denied because there was another Albany, Missouri already in the state and he used the name of his wife Ada for the post office but still continued to call the town Albany.[6]

"Bloody Bill" Anderson was killed during the American Civil War during the Battle of Albany on October 24, 1864.[7]

Albany formally incorporated in 1871 however by then St. Louis, Kansas City and Northern Star railroad (the Wabash Railroad) laid tracks a mile south in 1868 and 1869 and a new community of Orrick sprung up around them.[6]

Orrick itself was laid out by the railroad and was named in honor of W. W. Orrick who had drawn up the plat. Orrick was incorporated in 1873.[6]

On January 24, 1967 an unusual winter tornado outbreak destroyed the town's high school killing two students.[8]

The high school football team, the Orrick Bearcats won Missouri state high school football championships in 1975, 2007 and 2008.[9][10]
