County Information

Gentry County was formally organized as a governmental unit on March 1, 1845. In February 1861 Worth County split off. The courthouse was destroyed in a windstorm on July 13, 1883. The county records were salvaged, and offices were set up in building on the north side of the square. A fire destroyed the building and all courthouse records were lost in the blaze. The recorder’s records, land and marriage begin March 1885.
