Here is a little "Ivy Bend History,

        The road to Ivy Bend is unique and has an interesting history. At  one time, the area known as Ivy Bend was a thriving farm community.  Settlers came to the rolling hills of central Missouri, saw the rich  bottom land and built their homes.

        The name Ivy Bend comes from Col. Ivy, a man who supposedly  brought his slaves from Kentucky to work his farm. Ivy owned the big end  of the Bend before the government took the land over. Many families  lived just outside the Bend along a wagon trail that eventually became  Lake Road 135-12 and later Ivy Bend Road.

       In 1929, Union Electric went into the farming region of the Bend, wanting to create a source of power: a man-made lake.  

        Families like Ivy's sold the bottom land to Union Electric. There  farmland was to go under water. The farmers moved away and Union  Electric backed up the waters of the Niangua and Osage rivers.

      The Lake was full in 1931, Ivy Bend became a thumb of land, 3 miles  long and 2 miles wide, surrounded by water. Those who now populate the  Bend are different than the earlier settlers. What had been a farming  community became a lake community with resorts and other commercial  features. Many of those who presently live in the Ivy Bend area are from  cities such as the Kansas City, St. Louis area's.  In the early years  most of the property owners were "weekenders".  

      Ivy Bend, a peninsula formed by the Lake of the Ozarks, is in the  southwest corner of Morgan County and is surrounded almost completely by  water.  Children who live in the Ivy Bend area attend Morgan County R-1  school in Stover Mo.
