Henry County was once home to the Lower Creek Confederacy. They now prefer to be called the Muscogee. It was occupied by various cultures of indigenous peoples who lived primarily along the rivers for thousands of years.
This region was colonized by several European powers, including France and Spain. This area was taken over by Great Britain after it defeated France in the Seven Year's War. The colony of British West Florida had jurisdiction over the area now known as Henry County, Alabama, between 1763 and 1783. After gaining independence during the American Revolutionary War, the United States took it from Britain.
The territorial settlers established Franklin, the first European-American settlement on Muscogee/Creek territory, in 1814. This riverport was once used to serve Abbeville, which is located on the Chattahoochee River. Henry County was located in the Alabama wiregrass region.
The Alabama Territorial Legislature established Henry County on December 13, 1819. The Treaty of Fort Jackson gave the Creek Indian Nation the right to cede the area. Henry County was established before Alabama became a state. Abbeville was named the county seat in 1833.
Henry County is known as "The Cradle of the Wiregrass". She is also The Mother to nine other counties. The county was Alabama's largest by area when it was established in December 1819.
