Mason County

Mason County, created on January 2, 1804, from part of Kanawha County, is named for the statesman George Mason. The Ohio River forms the western boundary, and the Kanawha River divides the northern and southern parts of the county. Mason has long been a leading agricultural county, producing milk and livestock, corn, hay, tobacco, and orchard fruit.
