Where to Start

Holt County History 

Holt County is located in the northwest corner of Missouri and was organized 29 January 1841 from territory acquired in the Platte Purchase. Holt County is named for David Rice Holt, a Missouri legislator from Platte County. The county was originally named Nodaway County but the name was changed 17 days later to honor Mr. Holt who died during the legislative session. It is bounded on the north by Atchison County; on the northeast by Nodaway County and on the southeast by Andrew County. The Missouri River forms a natural boundary to the south and west. Across the Missouri River is Richardson County, NE to the west and Doniphan County, KS to the south. The Holt County seat is located in Oregon, MO. Cities: Bigelow, Big Lake, Corning, Craig, Forest City, Fortescue, Maitland, Mound City, Oregon
