WHO WE ARE TODAY
The Hive opened in 2016 with a handful of good friends and a whole lotta love! Now with well over 25 team members, it has quickly grown into Ozark's premier buzzing beauty business.
We love it when our clients make a day of their visit to The Hive. Sometimes our gals come in pairs and groups, they meet for lunch at one of Ozark's delicious tea rooms, they have their hair done, get a massage or facial, shop at the boutiques on the square, have a cupcake, and more! The Ozark square is a fun and relaxing place to “bee”.
The city of Ozark was first settled in 1833 along the banks of the Finley River. Among the first businesses was a general store, doctors office, wagon and freight yard, and a blacksmith shop.
In 1882, the railroad arrived. Along with it, came new businesses and new growth.
After the Great Depression, the population began to dwindle. In the past 20 years Ozark has become a wonderful suburb of Springfield. Conveniently located between Springfield and Branson, new businesses are being established daily and new subdivisions continue to develop.
Christian County was established in 1859 and was named after Christian County, Kentucky. The Christian County Courthouse was built in 1860 on the north side of the square in Ozark. Most notoriously, three "Baldknobbers" were hanged on the Southwest corner of the Square in 1889.
