Established: Feb.14, 1845
Parent County: Benton and Polk  County Seat: Hermitage
Named After:  President Andrew Jackson, "Old Hickory"

Is situated near the center of the southwest quarter of the State. 
The land is generally fertile, undulating, and in some places broken, with about an equal amount of prairie and timberland. In this, as in most other counties, the forests are growing up rapidly since the Indians have been driven away, and the annual fires kept out. But little attention has been paid to the culture of grapes, hemp, flax, or tobacco. An average crop of wheat is about thirty bushels to the acre; corn, 100 oats, 30; buckwheat 12 to 15; potatoes 50 to 60; turnips 300. Timothy, clover, and Hungarian grass do well. There is excellent waterpower on the Niangua and Pomme de Terre, unimproved. Lead and iron have been found in various localities, but no mines opened. There were, in March, 95,000 acres of government land in the county, subject to entry at the Booneville Land Office.
