Webster County History
Webster County was originally formed from Henderson County, Hopkins County and Union County in 1860. It is located in the Western Coal Field region of the state and bounded by Union, Henderson, Hopkins, McLean and Crittenden counties.
A trip on US 41A takes you to Webster County where the name of the county itself has historical significance. The county was named in honor of Daniel Webster, on of the greatest of American orators, statesmen and lawyers, and established in 1860. When you visit Webster County , be sure to see the historic War Memorial on the Courthouse Lawn in Dixon . Built in remembrance of 85 Webster County residents who died in World Wars I & II, it's a true reminder of the part Webster County played in the history of our nation.
