Wakenda is an unincorporated community in Carroll County, Missourimarker. It is located on Missouri Supplemental Route B about eight miles southeast of Carrolltonmarker. The community was founded in 1869 and is named after the Siouan name for God or the Great Spirit. It was originally proposed as the potential county seat, although Carrollton was eventually selected.

The community was destroyed in the summer of 1993 during the Great Missouri River Flood. It was flooded again in 1995, but the school and a few buildings remained until struck by a tornado. A simple stone marker alongside Route B honors the missing town. There is still currently a grain elevator for the local grain growers and a household of three. There is also a small auto repair shop and the remnants of the old city jailhouse.
