OK, I learned something new today - Webster Springs is not the "Official" name of this town. It's "Official" name is Addison, so named in 1892.
Located about 25 miles (as the crow flies) southeast of the Geographical Center of the State. Population is about 800, and is home of the Webster County Woodchopping Festival. It was the location of the Webster Springs Hotel, a 265-room resort (that's larger than the Greenbrier Resort
) that was built in 1897 and burned to the ground in 1925.
