Welcome to the Macon County, NC GenWeb

Macon County was formed in 1828 from Haywood County.  Prior to the Treaty of 1819, the area was Cherokee land.  After the treaty was signed, the area was a part of Haywood County until the county formation in 1828.  The county was named for Nathaniel Macon, a respected statesman of NC.  In 1851, Jackson County was created from Macon and Haywood Counties, and in 1872, Swain County was created from Jackson and Macon Counties.
