Chronology of Henry County
This Chronology of Henry County is a decidely a work in process. Only a small portion of the information available has yet been included and much additional research is needed. Additions will be made to the chronology from time to time. Check here for information on which decades have been changed and when.
In order to keep the file sizes within reason, the chronology has been broken up into decades, each in a separate file.
In addition to the main chronology there are several secondary chronologies available, including ones for the Post Offices, Railroads, and Clinton Schools.
