Text of sign:

 

Decatur County

 

1821-1825

 

Created by an Act of Legislature on December 7, 1821, Decatur County was comprised of portions of Madison and Jackson 

Counties.  "Old Woodsville", two miles north along County Highway 7, was designated as the County Seat. An 1823-24 

completed survey revealed that it did not contain the constitutionally required number of square miles.  The county was abolished by

 an Act of the Legislature on December 28, 1825, and the territory was returned to Madison and Jackson Counties.
