On this web site you will find links to various places that may provide you with information on your ancestors
who may have lived in Scott County.  We will add more links as they become available.  

Scott County was organized by the state legislature in January 1886, thirteen years after the boundaries were defined
and the county was surveyed.  Scott City, the county seat, is located in the center of the county.  
Some of the early towns were Pence City, Painter City, Zenobia and Arcola.  Modoc, Manning, Grigston,
and Shallow Water are towns still located in the county.

The Scott County Historical Society was originally formed in January 12, 1931.  It was reformed in May of 2001
and the content of this page is in part possible, because of their hard work and dedication to preserving
not only their own family histories, but also providing Scott County historical information to those who desire it.
