Biographical or historical data
  • Scott County was formed from Lee, Russell and Washington counties by a statute adopted on 24 November 1814. The county court first met on 14 February 1815. Scott County was named for General Winfied Scott, a native of Virginia, in recognition of his victories during the War of 1812. General Scott was later commanding general of the American army during the war with Mexico.
  • The superior courts of law were created in 1808, and met biannually in each county. These courts replaced the old district courts. In 1831, the circuit superior court of law and chancery replaced the superior courts of law and the superior courts of chancery.
