St. Clair County

Created in 1818 by territorial legislature. Named for Revolutionary hero, Gen. St. Clair. First settlers from Tennessee, Georgia - veterans of Creek Indian War, 1813-14.

Pell City established as industrial town in 1890 by George H. Pell of New York.

Growth of population south of Backbone Mt. and difficulty of crossing mountain led to branch county seat here in 1902. County seat at Ashville since 1822.

Old Indian trails thru this county used by: DeSoto's Spanish conquistadors - 1540, Andrew Jackson's forces - 1813-14, Generals Rosseau, Craxton - 1864-65.
