Upon formation, Henry County was the largest county within Alabama composing all or portions of the present counties of Barbour, Coffee, Covington, Crenshaw, Dale, Geneva, Houston and Pike. When the youngest county of Houston was formed in 1903, Henry became the smallest. Franklin, the Dead River port of Abbeville on the Chattahoochee River, was the colonial settlers first beachhead into the wild west of Creek Indian Territory after 1814. Old Henry was the original Alabama wiregrass area.
