Prattville History

The area now known as Prattville was initially inhabited primarily by the Native Americans. It was in the 1830s that Daniel Pratt of Temple, New Hampshire, chanced upon the gleaming waters of Autauga Creek. He purchased approximately 1,000 acres of land around the creek from Joseph May. 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.
