The Clubhouse  History and Rental Info

          The Historical Society's Mission Statement:

"To collect, preserve and share the history of the Webb City area."


The Clubhouse was built in 1910 by the Southwest Missouri Electric Railway Company Employees Association. The Clubhouse was used for passing the time between shifts. It was equipped with showers, beds, card and pool tables. When the streetcar system closed, the building was donated to the county for use as a health department.

In the 1990's the county moved the health department to Carthage and the building was given to the Historical Society which undertook a major renovation effort., In 2010, the grounds were landscaped, funded by a grant from the W.H. and Marion Perry Foundation.

There are several displays on Webb City history at the Clubhouse on such topics as: local minerals, mining, Lakeside, the history of the building, Sentinel newspaper photos from the last decade, and a display of cartoons by Nick Frising. 


The Historical Society maintains and rents out The Clubhouse.

 Clubhouse rental rates:


West room - $50 for 4 hours. 

Each additional hour is $10 


East & West rooms - $80 for 4 hours.  Each additional hour is $10 

As entrance to kitchen and bathroom is through West room, both must be rented when renting the East room. 



Both floors- $150 for the day (9 am to 11 pm)

Due to energy cost, the upper level will only be rented during fair weather months.


            A $25.00 Cleaning Deposit is required for all rentals.


  • Renters must handle all set up and take down and leave the premises in good condition as found. Although only one event will be reserved at a time, multiple events may be reserved in the same day. Reserved times should include set-up and clean-up.


  • On Sundays events should not begin until after 11:00am. This is because we share parking spaces with Frisco Church who has priority on parking on Sunday mornings.

  • Because of some unfortunate experiences in the past, the Clubhouse is not available for rummage sales, or teen parties.

  • No smoking or alcohol allowed in building.
