COUNTY INFORMATION
 
Barbour County was established on December 18, 1832, from former Creek Indian homelands and a portion of Pike County. Its county seat is Clayton. Its name is in honor of James Barbour, who served as Governor of Virginia.    In 1833, Louisville was chosen as the first county seat for Barbour County. The county seat was moved in 1834, after an eleven-member committee selected Clayton because of its central geographic location.    By the 1870s, the city of Eufaula had surpassed Clayton in size, sparking debate about whether the county seat should be moved to the county's commercial center or remain at its geographic center. Reaching a compromise, the legislature passed Act No. 106 on February 12, 1879, to establish county courts in both Eufaula and Clayton. Today, two county courthouses continue to operate in Barbour County. (Source: Wikipedia)
