Webster County History Museum In 1911 Marshfield became the smallest United States community west of the Mississippi to receive a Carnegie Foundation grant for the purpose of founding a library. Today this building houses the Webster County History Museum. This is a wonderful place to visit, see and appreciate the history of the county.

The "Walk of Fame" begins on the sidewalk in front of the Webster County History Museum. Six famous Missourians are honored on the walk of fame each year during the Annual Cherry Blossom Festival, which is held in April.
