Newton County, Mississippi, was organized on February 26, 1836, its parent county being Neshoba. Neshoba County and other area counties were created in December 1833 from Choctaw Indian Lands in the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek. The treaty was signed on September 28, 1830.

Newton County, Mississippi, is located in east central Mississippi and consists of 568 square miles. It is the only perfectly square county in the state.

The county was named for the scientist and philosopher Sir Isaac Newton and its seat of government is located at Decatur on land donated by an early settler, Isaac Hollingsworth.
