Bloodland was once a thriving community situated in the middle of the area selected by the Department of the Army to build Fort Leonard Wood. In 1941 there were three general stores, three filling stations, two churches, two barbershops, a stave mill, a tomato canning factory, a brand new high school, and 120 inhabitants. The residents of Bloodland and the surrounding area had to leave their homes by July 1941 and workers began tearing everything down. The Bloodland Methodist Church was probably organized in the late 1800s, the church building was constructed around 1900. Many Bloodland families attended the church and are buried in its cemetery. The cemetery remains today and is maintained by Fort Leonard Wood.
