Surrounding Communities

daytonDayton is an enterprising community located in the Southern part of Webster County.  It is believed that A. Peterson was the first person to settle in Dayton Township, in 1848.  Around the summers of 1851 and 1852 a number of Americans came to Dayton.  The Town of Dayton was laid out and named by Benjamin Allison in November of 1856.  Allison also built the first house in town and also started the first saw mill in 1856 that supplied the lumber for building. Some of the early settlers made their homes in caves in the hillsides and then later the log cabins were built.
