Gladstone was founded by Judge Harvey Cross in the late 19th century, and formally incorporated on January 10, 1911. He laid out the city’s first streets. Cross’ home was built in the late 1840s by Fendal Cason, and Cross purchased it in 1862. The Cason-Cross House later became Cochran Mortuary, and as of 2008, Mr. Rooter, a plumbing service, occupies the space.
There is also a small park named after Cross, located at the same place one of the Indian tribes made its camp.
Cross chose the name “Gladstone” because he admired Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone of England.[
