Adair County is located in eastern Oklahoma, bordered by Arkansas. Created in 1907 from the lands of the Cherokee Nation's Going Snake and Flint Districts, Adair County was named after a well-known Cherokee family. Stilwell, formed in 1897, has been the county seat since 1910.

Primary industries of the county include food processing and canning, poultry raising, cattle ranching and horse breeding.

The Annual Strawberry Festival is held in May to celebrate the strawberry, a principal crop of the area.

Sites of interest within Adair County include the site near Westville of the Old Baptist Missionary Church, built by the "Trail of Tears" Cherokees in 1836. A marker stands near the community of Watts recognizing Fort Wayne, a military post established in 1838 and abandoned in 1842, although it was reactivated and was the site of a Civil war battle in 1862.

Area - 569 Square Miles - Recreation Area - Adair Major Stream Systems - Illinois River, Sallisaw and Little Lee Creek
