Holt County was organized January 29, 1841 from a territory of the Platte Purchase, located in the northwest corner of Missouri. The Missouri River forms a natural boundary to the south and west. It was originally named Nodaway County. The name changed seventeen days later to honor David Rice Holt, a Missouri Legislator, who died during the legislative session.
