History

The land which would be called Cassville was platted in 1845.[8] A post office was set up the same year.[9] The community was named after Lewis Cass, a former United States Senator and Secretary of War.[10] Cassville was incorporated on March 3, 1847.[11]

Cassville served as the secessionist capital of Missouri for one week from October 31 to November 7, 1861. This ended abruptly when Confederate forces were pushed further south by the Union. The Battle of Pea Ridge later secured Missouri for the Union.[12]
