A County Older Then The State


Limestone County


created Feb. 6, 1818


by Alabama Territorial Legislature


from lands ceded by Cherokee Nation 1806 and by Chickasaw Nation in 1816.


Named for creek (and its limestone bed) which runs through the county.  Few settlers here until Indian treaties.  Athens became 

county seat in 1818.  Limestone was first Alabama county to be occupied by Federal Troops during the Civil War.
