Carroll County

County History

In the Mississippi Delta Region, Carroll County was established by the Mississippi legislature on December 23, 1833 from land ceded by the Choctaw Indians under the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek 1830. It was named for Charles Carroll, the last surviving signer of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. Because of its original size, 908 square miles, Carroll County has two county seats, Carrollton and Vaiden. In 1870, large portions of Carroll County were used to form three other counties - Leflore, Grenada, and Montgomery, reducing the county to its present size of 615 square miles. As of 2000, the population is 10,769. It is part of the Greenwood, Mississippi Micropolitan Statistical Area. Carroll County is bordered by Grenada County (north), Montgomery County (east), Attala County (southeast), Holmes County (south) and Leflore County (west).
