Settlement in this area began in the 1820s, and Morgan County was organized from Cooper County in 1833. The county seat is at Versailles. The northern half of the county is prairie farmland; the southern half is wooded hills and bottomlands. The economy of Morgan County was forever altered by the construction of the Bagnell Dam in 1929-31 and the formation of the Lake of the Ozarks along its southern border.
