This page will be added to on an ongoing basis. We'll try to keep it in some sort of good order as our crack team of volunteer historians continue to send stuff in. We'll keep a counter going of how many different people send in useful material. Hopefully this will turn into a great community effort!

Gotta start somewhere so...

Keith Nichols has an abbreviated History of Nickelsville  that mostly tracks the genealogy of the Nickels family but does have the incorporation date of Nickelsville set at 1878.

​Over at Genealogy Trails , they have a veterans census for Nickelsville from 1890 with surviving soldiers and the windows of others who did not survive while in service during the Civil War. They also have an interesting page on some of the geographical names  in Scott County. 


The Scott County Historical Society, Inc.  has quite a collection of historically significant information.
