Major transportation routes serving Webster County include Interstate 69, U.S. Highway 41, U.S. Highway 41-Alternate and State Highway 132.
The county is characterized by rolling hills and fertile creek bottoms, and its prosperity has long been tied to its bountiful soil and mineral resources. Ninety percent of the county's farm income is derived from corn and soybeans. Wheat, fruit, beef, hogs and dark and burley tobacco provide supplementary income. Almost thirty percent of the county's acreage is commercial forest land.
Webster County is also home to many community festivals and events such as Dixon Freedom Days, the Providence Coal Festival, Sebree Horse Show, Sebree Summerfest, Poole Harvest Daze, Clay Days and Onton Hay Days.
The county seat is Dixon, home to several historical buildings and sites.
