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
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]
