County Information

Founded December 5, 1866
Formed out of parts of Macon, Tallapoosa, Chambers, and Russell Counties, it is named in honor of Robert E. Lee, commanding general of the Confederate Army.
The county seat is Opelika, and the largest city is Auburn.

The Lee County Courthouse in Opelika was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 23, 1973.

Phenix City, located in the southeastern corner of Lee County, merged with the town of Girard, located in the northeastern corner of Russell County. To prevent the new town of Phenix City from straddling the Lee-Russell line, Lee County ceded to Russell County the 10 square miles in the southeastern corner surrounding Phenix City in exchange for 20 square miles in the northwest corner of Russell County surrounding the unincorporated community of Marvyn. This new territory is what forms the southern "panhandle" of Lee County.
