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.
