Official Website

Gibson County is located in what was known as "Indian Land": territory that was legally occupied by Chickasaw Native American people. The Chickasaw Cession, proclaimed on January 7, 1819, eliminated those rights and opened the region for settlement and exploitation by white settlers and speculators. The county was established by private act on October 21, 1823 and was named in honor of Colonel John H. Gibson.
