DeKalb County History

Is in the north-western part of the State. The soils of the county are fertile and well adapted to the culture of hemp, corn, wheat, oats, tobacco, etc. Hemp has been regarded as the most profitable crop-yielding from 1000 to 1500 pounds to the acre, which costs, say $25 per acre to raise and prepare for market, and was quoted in February, '65, at from $135 to $165 per ton for undressed-good to choice at St. Louis. Small grains yield abundantly. Horses, mules, cattle and sheep, do well and stock raising is profitable. Building stone, clay for bricks, and hard-wood timber, abundant. The general surface is undulating, and diversified by prairies and woodlands. The Hannibal and St. Joseph railroad passes through the southern border of the county.
