Welcome to Cherokee County

Welcome to Cherokee County, Alabama! Cherokee County is located in Northeast Alabama and is the home of the beautiful Weiss Lake. Weiss Lake is well known for its spectacular views and some of the world's best fishing. Cherokee County is the crown jewel of Northeast Alabama! 

Cherokee County was created by the Alabama legislature on January 9, 1836. It was named for the Cherokee Indians who ceded the land to the Federal government by the Treaty of New Echota, December 29, 1835. Cherokee County is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and encompasses 553 square miles. It is bordered on the north by DeKalb County, on the west by Etowah County, on the south by Calhoun and Cleburne Counties, and the east by Chattooga and Floyd Counties, GA.

              



Small Business Saturday - November 29th, 2104

Governor Robert Bentley signed a proclamation formally declaring November 29 as Small Business Saturday in Alabama. Small Business Saturday is designed to celebrate and support small businesses and the impact it has on Alabama communities. "Small Business Saturday is an important opportunity for Alabamians to support local retailers on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving," Governor Bentley said. "Small businesses are the engines of job growth and an integral part of the equation that makes up a successful economy. By recognizing Small Business Saturday, we can help support the small businesses that contribute to our economy and our communities. As we begin the holiday shopping season, I encourage Alabamians to shop at local small businesses throughout Alabama," Governor Bentley said.  Click here to view the resolution. 

Be sure you stop by a few of Cherokee County's small businesses when you start your shopping on November 29th!
