HISTORY OF THE CHAPTER

 

The chapter and county take their name in honor of Zebulon Pike, a native of New Jersey, and the son of a "respectable officer" in the United States Army. Zebulon Pike helped to establish the boundary lines of the Louisiana Purchase and explore a great share of the Mississippi River basin.

 

Piketon, the site of a few cabins at the junction of the Levisa and Russell forks of the Big Sandy river, was the first county seat. Pikeville, the seat of justice, as county seats were then called, was incorporated in 1824.
