Dade County

Dade County, the northwest corner piece of Georgia, dates to 1837 when its lands were taken from Walker County. First called Salem, the county seat later was designated Trenton after New Jersey's capital. Isolated by mountain ridges, until the 1940s there was no paved road from Dade into the rest of Georgia. Travelers usually approached it from Tennessee.
