Lots being cleared for high school parking

Several homes on North Madison Street across from the high school have been purchased by the Webb City R-7 School District and are being demolished. Plans are to create more parking, which would be especially helpful for those attending events at the Ronald R. Barton Performing Arts Center.

Two upcoming Webb City Historical Society events
