Caldwell County is a county located in Northwest Missouri in the United States. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the county's population was 9,424. Its county seat is Kingston. The county was organized December 29, 1836 as a haven for the Mormons, who had been previously driven from Jackson County in November 1833 and had been refugees in adjacent Clay County ever since. The county was one of the principal settings of the 1838 Missouri Mormon War, which led to the expulsion of all Latter-Day Saints from Missouri following the issuance of a so-called "extermination order" by then Governor Lilburn Boggs. The county was named by Alexander Doniphan to honor John Caldwell, who participated in the George Rogers Clark Native American Campaign of 1786 and was the second Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky. (Caldwell County, Kentucky is also named in his honor.)

Caldwell County is part of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
