County Seat: Carthage
Leake County was
named for Walter Leake the governor of
Mississippi from 1822 to 1825. The county
was formed on December 23, 1823 as a result of
the Treaty of the Dancing Rabbit in 1830.
In addition to Leake County, fifteen other
counties were created. The legal
description of the county was described by
the original act :
Beginning at the northeast corner of Scott
County, and running thence north with the line
between the ranges 9 and 10 east, to the line
between townships 12 and 13, from thence with
the line between ranges 5 and 6 east; from
thence south with said line between ranges 5 and
6 east, to the line between townships 8 and 9;
and from thence east to the place of beginning."
