Webster County was created by an act of the Georgia General Assembly on December 16th, 1853, as Kinchafoonee County. A subsequent legislative act on February 21st, 1856, changed the name to Webster. The land for the county came from portions of Stewart County.

The County is named for Daniel Webster, U.S. representative of New Hampshire and U.S. representative and U.S. senator of Massachusetts. Webster County's original name of Kinchafoonee comes from the Kinchafoonee Creek which runs through the county
