Text of sign:

 

Dade County

 

Often called the "State of Dade," because, as legend has it, the county seceded from the Union ahead of Georgia, and only returned 

to the Union July 4, 1945.

 

Created December 25, 1837, and named for Major Francis Langhorne Dade, killed by Indians in Florida December 1835.  The 

county seat was first named Salem, then changed to Trenton in 1840.  

 

Outstanding picturesque mountain scenery accounts for the creation of Cloudland State Park.  Rich coal and iron deposits have 

been worked since Ante-Bellum times.
