Established: Feb. 8, 1861,effective Feb. 25, 1861
Parent County: Gentry
County Seat: Grant City
Named After: Gen. William J. Worth, who served in the Mexican-American War.
Worth County was recently formed from the northern part of Gentry
County, bordering on the Iowa State line, in the northwestern part of the State.
The face of the country is undulating and rolling-about one-third timber land, consisting of oak, walnut, hickory,
maple, ash, elm, lynn, cottonwood, etc.
The soil is generally fertile, and well adapted to the production of all kinds of grain, grasses, fruits, and vegetables-except
peaches, which have been unsuccessful. Excellent grazing county. Flouring mills and manufactories needed. Lots
at the county-seat will be devoted to mechanics and manufacturers, who will bring capital enterprise, and establish
in business. Also an excellent site for a mill, will be donated to any one who will establish a mill or woolen
factory. (Source: The Source is: P.M. Pinckard, The Missouri handbook, St. Louis, 1865, 162 pgs. Transcribed
