Chilton County

History

Chilton County is located in the central part of the state, with its northeastern half lying within the Piedmont Region and its southwestern half in the Southern Coastal Plain. Chilton was created in 1868 from lands taken from Autauga, Bibb, Perry, and Shelby counties. The Coosa River forms the eastern boundary of the county. Originally named Baker Co., Chilton Co. received its present name in 1874. The original county seat was at Grantville, but when the courthouse burned in 1870, the county seat was removed to Goosepond, a stop on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. Goosepond was later renamed Clanton. Clanton is on I-65, about 40 miles north of Montgomery and 50 miles south of Birmingham. Chilton is bordered by the counties of Shelby, Coosa, Elmore, Autauga, Dallas, Perry and Bibb.
