Noxubee County was one of twenty-six counties in our State that was carved from the last great Indian cession east of the Mississippi River. On September 27, 1830, the United States entered into a treaty with the Choctaws in the forks of the Dancing Rabbit Creek which lay in the southwestern portion of what came to be Noxubee County. About 6,000 Choctaws and 500 whites met at the Choctaw Council Grounds and finally agreed on the terms of the Dancing Rabbit Creek Treaty. In December 1833 Noxubee was authorized by the State Legislature.
Because of its central location within the county, Macon was selected as the county seat. Five members of the Board of Police (presently called Board of Supervisors) were elected on February 17, 1834. The first land sales in the county began in 1834 and land sold for about $1.75 per acre. Macon was named for Nathaniel Macon, a statesman of North Carolina. ....READ MORE
