Welcome to Cherokee County

Welcome to Cherokee County, Alabama. Located in Northeast Alabama and home to beautiful Weiss Lake - where one can find some of the world's best fishing and most spectacular views. 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 that now comprises the county to the Federal government by the Treaty of New Echota, December 29, 1835. Cherokee County is located in the northeastern portion of the state, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Cherokee County 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, and the east by Chattooga and Floyd Counties, GA.
