Carroll County was established in 1821 and named for the governor, William Carroll. Throughout its history, agriculture has provided the economic base for the county. However, in recent years, the economy has shifted toward manufacturing and commercial enterprises with the development of such industries like the textile manufacturer Henry I. Siegel Company, Inc., that produces women’s jeans. The county also is one of three counties that has part of the Natchez Trace State Park that offers recreational opportunities such as camping, hiking, swimming and fishing for the public.
