Established: Jan. 29, 1841
Parent County: Barry and Polk County Seat: Greenfield
Named After: Francis L. Dade, pioneer settler
Is situated in the south-western part of the State. The face of the country is undulating, and in some portions broken-more prairie than timber. The soil is generally fertile, and well adapted to the various purposes of agriculture, horticulture, and stock raising. Water power is abundant-upon some of the streams unimproved. Iron, copper, and coal have been found in various parts of the county, but no mine have been worked to any considerable extent. Timber enough along the valleys for practical purposes.
    The mildness of the climate, abundance of native and cultivated grasses, and of stock water render this county well adapted to stock growing. Thousands of cattle have been driven from here to Utah and California. There were on the 1st of March, about 30,000 acres of government land in this county, subject to entry at the Booneville Land Office.
