Donald "Duck" Webster
Yesterday, we lost our longtime public servant, Councilmember Donald “Duck” Webster. The Town of Nutter Fort mourns the loss of a sincere community leader and friend.
Duck accomplished many things for our Town as Councilmember, Recorder, and Mayor. All who knew Duck knew of his passion for Nutter Fort and the well-being of its people. Duck was upbeat and positive thinking. He made encouraging and lasting impressions on all elected officials and Town staff and immediately bonded with those around him. Councilmember Webster has been a staple in this community for many decades.
He will truly be missed. Our prayers are with his daughter Danielle and her family. May God comfort them through this incredibly difficult time.

The Town of Nutter Fort received its name from a family by the name of Nutter. The Nutters were of Scotch-English descent. Coming to America at an early date, Thomas Nutter first settled in Sussex County, Delaware, where his oldest son, Christopher was born. They moved to Augusta County, Virginia where the family remained until 1769. At that time, they moved to Fayette County, Pennsylvania, and in March, 1772, the Nutter brothers (Thomas, Matthew & Christopher) came to Harrison County where they built and defended the now famous Nutter's Fort. The Town of Nutter Fort was incorporated in 1923 and our present population is approximately 1600 people. The Town is fortunate to have several subdivisions of government that helps make the Town a superior place to reside. Our residents are provided with 24-hour protection from the Nutter Fort Police and Fire Departments.
