Cartersville was established as a voting precinct on October
1841. It was located on the Jacinto and Tuscumbia stage route.
It is said to have been established before the county was
organized. There was a large mercantile business here conducted
by Mr. Barton as well as a post office. It was on the first
official map of the State of Mississippi in 1817.
