Bibb County

History

Bibb County was originally created as Cahaba County by the Alabama Territorial Legislature in 1818 and the name was changed to Bibb in 1820. The county is located near the center of the state and is drained by the Cahaba River. The terrain is very hilly and there are significant mineral deposits in the northern part of the county, which is the southwestern-most point of the Appalachian Mountain Region. The south and western part of the county fall within the Southeastern Plains Region. Bibb is bordered by Jefferson, Shelby, Chilton, Perry, Hale and Tuscaloosa counties. The county seat is located at Centreville, the site of the falls in the Cahaba River. Centreville is on US-82 about 70 miles northwest of Montgomery and 50 miles southwest of Birmingham.
