Webb City Historical Society

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

                 History of The Clubhouse 

     The Clubhouse at 115 N. Madison was constructed in 1910 as the clubhouse for the employees of the Southwest Missouri Railroad Company.  Employees took breaks, naps, read, played cards and pool during breaks in their long shifts on the streetcars.

 

     After the demise of the streetcar system, the building was given to the county for use as a health department. Many Webb Citians remember getting their vaccinations and flu shots there. 

     In 1997, the health department moved to Carthage and the building reverted to the heirs of Harry and Geneva Easley who made the original gift. The heirs, H. Michael Easley, Ginger Eckerman and Sara McKibben, in turn, gave the building to the Historical Society.

     Structurally sound, but in need of a new roof and many cosmetic changes, the building breathed life into the Society which had been dormant for many years. Dedicated volunteers repaired and re-painted, funds were raised for a new roof and other major renovations.

     The building, which is available for rent, hosts over 100 family and community events each year while displaying Webb City history.

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.
