Chilton County is located in the central part of
the state. It was created by the Alabama legislature on 1868 Dec. 30, from lands
taken from Autauga, Bibb, Perry, and Shelby counties. Chilton County encompasses
695 square miles. The Coosa River forms the eastern boundary of the county.
Originally named Baker Co., Chilton Co. received its present name on 1874 Dec.
17, in honor of Judge William Parish Chilton, chief justice of the AL Supreme
Court and a member of the provisional and regular Congress of the Confederacy.
The original county seat was at Grantville. When
the courthouse burned in 1870, the county seat was removed to Goosepond, a stop
on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. The town was renamed Clanton after
Brig. Gen. James Holt Clanton. Other significant towns and communities are Jemison,
Thorsby, Verbena, Maplesville, and Mountain Creek.
