Note: Perry County, originally part of Cumberland County, was created in 1820 in part because residents did not want to travel over the mountain to Carlisle (the county seat of Cumberland County). Perry County's county seat is Bloomfield, which is sometimes called New Bloomfield. It was created on March 22, 1820, and was named after Oliver Hazard Perry, hero of the War of 1812, who had recently died.
