About Saline County. Saline County was formed from Gallatin County in 1847. The creation of Saline County was extremely controversial. It was created by a voice vote in the General Assembly in 1847. Completion of the formation of Saline County, however, involved three acts of the General Assembly, four decisions of the Illinois Supreme Court and two referendums. The controversy came to involve the leading attorneys of Illinois, including Abraham Lincoln.

 

Its county seat is Harrisburg, Illinois.

 

Saline County was named for the Saline River and the springs from which salt was produced in the early history of Gallatin County. Learn More
