HARRISON COUNTY MISSOURI -

Established: Feb.14, 1845
Parent County: Daviess
County Seat: Bethany
Named After: Albert G. Harrison, Missouri congressman


Situated in the north northwestern part of the State, is bounded on the north by the Iowa State line. The surface is principally prairie, but in some sections broken.
The timber is mostly confined to the margins of water courses, and consists of white, black, pin, and burr oak, walnut, sugar tree, maple, linn, sycamore, birch, cherry, cottonwood, hackberry, ash, hickory, etc., which skirt the streams, and stand here and there in groves. The soil is generally fertile, and produces all kinds of grain, fruit and vegetables that grow in this latitude. There are fifteen sawmills and three flouring mills on Grand River and Big Creek. There is other fine waterpower unimproved. The inducements to immigration are, rich soil, good timber, healthy climate, clear, rapid streams, and good demand for all articles produced. This is an excellent county for stock growing.
