The county bears the name of Captain Jacob Warrick, a brave soldier and much esteemed citizen, who fell at the head of his company, in the battle of Tippecanoe. The surface of the county is mostly rolling or undulating, though there is a range of hills back of the river bottoms, and there are large tracts of flat, wet land at the heads of Pigeon and other creeks, with which the county is watered. The soil of the bottoms, many of which are large, is very rich, and immense crops of corn are produced there. Much of the upland is of a good quality, and the soil of the county, generally speaking, is productive. Boonville is the county seat, and is a thrifty place, having attained a growth equal to the development of the section of country around it. The only incorporated city is Boonville; incorporated towns are: Chandler, Elberfeld, Lynnville, Newburgh, and Tennyson. Some unincorporated towns are: Folsomville, Millersburgh, Paradise, Selvin and Yankeetown.
