Albertville History

Albertville was originally inhabited by the Cherokee Indians. It was first settled by the whites in the 1850s. It was named after Thomas A. Albert, one of its early settlers. The city was officially incorporated in 1891. The city was greatly destroyed by "The Great Cyclone" on April 24, 1908. In 1919, the Alabama Legislature decided to establish a courthouse in the city because the county courthouse, located in Guntersville, often became inaccessible due to the flooding of the Tennessee River.
