CLAY COUNTY

Established: Jan. 2, 1822
Parent County: Ray County Seat: Liberty
Named After: Henry Clay, Kentucky congressman
Is situated in the west north-west part of the State, on the Missouri River. The face of the country is somewhat broken, and generally well timbered, with small prairies in various portions of the county. The soil is remarkably fertile, and the county well watered. This county is noted for its fine farms and wealthy, intelligent farmers and stock growers. According to a recent census, Clay was one of the most productive agricultural counties in the State; notwithstanding which, there were at that time 142,661 acres of unimproved land in the county. Clay was foremost to organize teacher's institutes, and the citizens have always manifested more liberality and enterprise in the support of schools, than any other county in the State in proportion to her population. There are several first class ably conducted seminaries in the county. Farmers, manufacturers, mechanics and business men of all classes, will here find fertile soil, a healthy climate, abundance of timber and building materials, good prices and a ready market for all products either agricultural or mechanical, and an honest, industrious, and hospitable people.
