County History

Adams County, as the first-named of the two counties created by Governor Sargent's proclamation of Apr. 2, 1799, is the oldest county in Mississippi. It was one of the two original counties of the Natchez District, and, upon the conclusion of the Treaty of Mount Dexter, it became also an original county of the Choctaw Cession of 1805. It was named for President John Adams. While the north and east boundaries have remained constant, Adams County traded parcels of land with Wilkinson County, off and on, until 1914 when the present-day boundaries were established. There are a large number of Indian mounds in Adams county that were constructed by the Natchez Indians that occupied the area for many generations prior to the appearance of the white man. As of 2000, the population was 34,340. The county seat and largest town is Natchez.  Adams County is bordered by Jefferson County (north), Franklin County (east), Wilkinson County (south), Concordia Parish, Louisiana (southwest) and Tensas Parish, Louisiana.
