The City of Pocahontas is located at the geographical center of Pocahontas County. In the beginning, the land was owned by Warrick and Buelah Price of Cleveland, Ohio. On November 4, 1870, they had it surveyed and platted and arranged the lots, blocks, avenues, streets and alleys as they appear in the original survey.
The plat which included one hundred acres, was called the Village of Pocahontas Center. It was surveyedby Fred Hess and approved by Judge J.M. Snyder of the circuit court at Humboldt on November 9, 1870. They set apart for public use as a courthouse site and public park, a rectangular plat 600x800 feet in the center of the plat, provided the people of Pocahontas County should accept it for that purpose within five years, which they did on June 8, 1875.
