Laclede County

Established: Feb. 24, 1849
Parent County: Camden, Pulaski and Wright
County Seat: Lebanon
Named After: Pierre Laclede, founder of St. Louis, Missouri.

Is situated in the south central part of the State, was formed in 1849, from a portion of Pulaski, and named in honor of Pierre Laclede Liguest, the founder of St. Louis.   The county is situated upon the high table lands of the Ozark range, and presents a variety of surface, from the level or moderately undulating prairie, to rugged hills and miniature mountains.  In the vicinity of Big Niangua, Gasconade, and Osage Fork, the hills range from 155 to 500 feet in height, separated from each other by deep and narrow valleys.  The soil of the upland is various; the light and gravelly port ions are well adapted to fruit culture, and particularly favorable for grapes; while in the post-oak flats, the subsoil of clay comes nearer the surface.  For many purposes this soil is superior to the alluvial, and has produced as high as 55 bushels of wheat to the acre, from 800 to 1200 pounds of tobacco and most excellent timothy and grasses.  There are in the county probably 100,000 acres of rich alluvial bottomland, much of which is under a good state of cultivation.  Both iron and lead are found in the county.  There are 190,000 acres of Government land subject to entry.  Popula tion in 1860, 4,861.
