Shelby County was created by an act of the Alabama
Territorial General Assembly on February 7, 1818, from former Creek Indian territory
ceded in the Treaty of Fort Jackson on August 9, 1814. It is located in the
north-central part of the state and is bounded on the north by Jefferson and
St. Clair counties, on the south by Chilton and Bibb counties, on the east by
Talladega county and on the west by Bibb and Jefferson counties. About one-half
of the county is in the mineral belt. Shelby County encompasses 800 square miles.
The county is named for Isaac Shelby, first governor of Kentucky. The location
of the first county seat was Shelbyville. In 1826 the town of Columbia changed
its name to Columbiana and became the permanent county seat. Other towns and
communities include: Alabaster, Calera, Pelham, and Montevallo, home of the
University of Montevallo.
