Happy Landing

Happy Landing is on Farm Road 139 fourteen miles northeast of Center in eastern Shelby County. The site was settled by 1900, and by the 1930s the small settlement had a church, a school, and a number of houses. The school closed around the time of World War II, but in the early 1990s a church and a few scattered houses remained in the area.
