Named for the post-Civil War Mississippi statesman Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar, the county was carved out of Marion County to the west in the early 1900's.. It is largely a rural county, except for its northeast quarter, which is within the city limits of Hattiesburg. Lamar County is one of the fastest growing counties in Mississippi. Lamar county was formed April 1, 1904 from the second judicial district of Marion County and a small part of Hancock County, and the town of Purvis was made the county seat. Before European settlers came, the Choctaw Indians roamed through the heavy pine timber that grew in abundance over the county. There was an ancient Indian settlement in the extreme northwest end of the county, and there was an Indian Village about ten miles from Sumrall on Black Creek, where the Russell Bridge now spans the creek.
