Webster County was organized in 1855.
It was named after Secretary of State and Senator, Daniel Webster.
County seat is Marshfield, named after Daniel Webster's Massachusetts home town.
Marshfield was laid out in 1856 by R.H. Pitts, on land that was given by C.F. Dryden and W.T. and B.F.T. Burford. Until a courthouse was built, the county business was conducted at Hazelwood where Joseph W. McClurg, later Governor of Missouri, operated a general store. Today’s Carthage Marble courthouse was built in 1939-1941 and is the county’s third.  [source: wikipedia]
