  • About

    Wilkes County was one of the original counties created from Indian lands in 1773. The legislature designated the county in 1777 and thereafter divided it many times to form other counties. Its name pays homage to John Wilkes who had championed colonists' issues in the British House of Commons prior to the Revolutionary War.
