Webster came to be thanks to Samuel Slater, who is considered to be the father of the American cotton industry. Slater discovered the land after asking an assistant to find a new piece of land where he could put a cotton mill. His only requests were that the area had plenty of water and lots of nearby farms where cotton could be grown. By the time he died, Slater owned almost 90 percent of the town.
Prior to being one complete town, Webster was made up of three smaller mill towns.
