While researching the information needed for the new historical marker at the courthouse, researchers came across a mystery.

The north and south side of the courthouse bears the images of five faces. Four belong to US Presidents who have been easily identified. Those same four faces are also found on the courthouse architect Lawrence Casner designed in Caldwell County.

Webster County, however, has one additional face that Caldwell County does not, and researchers have been unable to find any documentation on the identity. The face is located between Jefferson and Lincoln.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Webster County Historical Society.
