History

Franklin County was formed in 1818 from Indian lands and in 1867 its northern half was split off as Colbert county. It is situated in the northwestern part of the state with its western half in the Southeastern Plains Region and its eastern half on the Interior Plateau. Franklin is bordered by Colbert, Lawrence, Winston, and Marion counties in Alabama, and by Tishomingo and Itawamba counties in Mississippi. The county seat was variously in Russellville, Frankfort, and Belgreen before being relocated back to Russellville in 1891. Other towns and communities include Red Bay and Phil Campbell. Russellville is on US-43, about 20 miles south of Florence, 70 miles WSW of Huntsville and 
100 miles northwest of Birmingham.
