Long Description:
EDINBURG,(110 pop.), boyhood home of Enoch Herbert Crowder (1859-1932), Crowder's varied career included service in the United States and the Far East preceding his appointment in 1911 as judge advocate general of the United States Army, in which capacity he made sweeping changes in the administration of military justice. When the United States entered the World War, he presented a comprehensive plan for the creation of a great military force. His Selective Service Act (the Draft) was adopted May 18, 1917. In 1923 Crowder was appointed the first United States ambassador to Cuba.. - Missouri: A Guide to the "Show Me State", Tour 9 , pg. 475

Not much has changed with Edinburg since the Guide was written.  It still appears to have a population of around 100.  Has a small church, no stores and several homes. A state park nearby is named in honor of General Enoch Crowder.
