The townships of this part of Missouri were once divided into four great divisions (when Pike County was still part of the Louisiana Purchase), known as Cape Girardeau, Sainte Genevieve, Saint Louis and Saint Charles. Once Pike County was established in 1818, it contained four of its own townships: Buffalo, Calumet, Mason and Peno. Today there are 10 townships within Pike County, legally designated as Ashley, Buffalo, Calumet, Cuivre, Hartford, Indian, Peno, Prairieville, Salt River and Spencer.
