     Gasconade County is a county in the U.S. state of Missouri, on the south side of the Missouri River, originally the chief route of transportation. Located in the area called the Missouri Rhineland, the county had a population of 15,342 as of the 2000 census. The county seat is Hermann.

The Gasconade County (and Gasconade River) received its name from French-speaking settlers.

     They came from the Gascony region in southwest France during French colonial rule of New France (Louisiana Territory.)  According to Ramsay, the French colonial inhabitants of this region had the same boastful character as the inhabitants of Gascony in France. Hence the name Gasconade, meaning 'Gascony-like'.

     Counties that lie adjacent to Gasconade are: Montgomery County (north); Warren County (northeast); Franklin County (east); Crawford County (southeast); Phelps County (south); Maries County (southwest); and Osage County (west).
