The area now known as Prattville was initially inhabited primarily by the Native Americans.

Pratt built manufacturing facilities along the banks of the creek so that water could be used as energy for the machineries in the cotton gins. Prattville remains one of the first planned communities of Alabama with separate areas for residences, businesses, schools, and churches.
