Montgomery County is the fourth largest of the 67 counties in the State of Alabama. It was created by an Act of the Legislature of the Mississippi Territory on December 6, 1816. Originally Montgomery County embraced the whole of central Alabama. But in time it was subdivided into other counties. It has been noted that Montgomery County is older than the State of Alabama. Montgomery has a very colorful history.
Settlers first began to populate the county in the early 1800's. The "Federal Road" which ran from Washington, DC to New Orleans made it's way diagonally across the territory that was to become Montgomery County. The "Federal Road" was in use in the late 1700's. Because it was one of the major migration routes, many settlers from the east settled in Montgomery County and later many migrated on to new territory in other parts of the south and west. Montgomery County was named in memory of Major Lemuel P. Montgomery, of Virginia, who was the first man to be killed in the Battle of Horseshoe Bend.
