Attala County was established on the 23rd of December, 1833, and was one of the sixteen counties carved from the Choctaw cession of 1830. The name is derived from the heroine (Atala) of an Indian romance written by Chateaubriand and chosen by the county's first state senator, Gordon D. Boyd  
In Attala County, in the 1800's, farming was the primary occupation of many residents; the crops that resulted, timber, cotton, and corn, required harvesting that involved machinery. And the occupation of some of these early Attala County residents was "gin operator."

Attala County is located in the geographic center of Mississippi and is located along the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway. Kosciusko is the county seat of Attala County.
