Welcome to Keytesville, the historic seat of Chariton County
In 1833, preacher and entrepreneur James Keyte donated land to allow a small community to escape repeated flooding. Keytesville, as the town became known, underwent a boom in population and became the county seat. Home of Missouri Governor and General Sterling Price, Keytesville was also the birthplace of both General Maxwell D. Taylor and sports star Cal Hubbard.
