Nodaway County, Missouri

County organized in 1845.
Named after the Nodaway River.
The County seat is Maryville.

Maryville was organized on February 14, 1845.
It was named after the first Caucasian women to have lived within the boundaries of this site, Mrs. Mary Graham, wife of Amos Graham, then county clerk.

Is situated in what is known as "The Platte Country," in the northwestern part of the State.
It embraces both prairie and timber; the soil is fertile, undulating, and some portions broken.
As to fertility, the soil is hardly surpassed in the State.
The county is well watered by the Platte, Hundred-and-Two, and Nodaway, each affording excellent water power for manufactories and mills.  Farmers, stock growers, manufacturers and mechanics will here find attractive inducements for investment and business.
Population in 1860, 5,136.
