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.
