Choctaw County Alabama
Choctaw County was established on December 29, 1847. The County was named for the Choctaw tribe of American Indians, though most of those which resided here were removed to Oklahoma. The early pioneers of Choctaw came from France, Ireland and Scotland, but mostly from North and South Carolina.
The county's population reached its peak in the 1920's due to the jobs created by such companies as E. E. Jackson Lumber Company in Riderwood and Choctaw Lumber Company in Bolinger. After the sawmills closed, Choctaw began a decline in population.
Its county seat is Butler.
