The history of Cassville
Cassville was established as the county seat of Barry Count in 1845 and named for Brigadier General Lewis Cass, a leading statesman of that time. A little over seven years before its founding, the Cherokee Indians camped nearby as they made the infamous “Trail of Tears” journey from the Southeastern part of the country to Oklahoma. The Civil War brought difficult times to Cassville as both Union and Confederate Armies marched through on the Old Wire Road which connected Springfield to Fayetteville Arkansas. Sixty three Civil War soldiers, both Union and Confederate, are buried at Oak Hill Cemetery in Cassville. During this time the Missouri General Assembly met in Cassville on October 31, 1861 and Missouri’s Articles of Secession were signed. Cassville served as the State capitol of Missouri for exactly one week.
