Napton, originally known as Jonesboro, is an unincorporated community in southeastern Saline County, Missouri, United States. Napton is located on Missouri Supplemental Route E southeast of Marshall. It was the county seat of Saline County from 1831 to 1839. It was later renamed Napton, after Judge William B. Napton, who wrote the pro-slavery Napton Resolution in the winter of 1848-1849.

Napton once had a post office, which is now closed; mail delivery now comes from Marshall. Napton also had a bank, grist mill (the grindstone of which is now located at the entrance of the old high school), railroad station, grain elevator and several stores.
