Etowah County was created by the Alabama legislature
on 1866 Dec. 7, and was originally named Baine County in honor of Gen. David
W. Baine, a Confederate soldier from Lowndes County. The county was abolished
on 1868 Dec. 1 by the Constitutional Convention and re-established on the same
day, under the name of Etowah, which is from the Cherokee language. Etowah county
is located in the northeastern section of the state, in the southern Appalachians.
It is bordered by Marshall, DeKalb, Cherokee, Calhoun, St. Clair, and Blount
Counties. It currently encompasses 542 square miles. Sand Mountain and Lookout
Mountain are located in Etowah County. Gadsden is the county seat, named after
Col. James Gadsden, distinguished soldier, diplomat, and railroad president.
Other towns and communities include Attalla and Rainbow City.
