History

Walker County was created in 1823 from Indian lands. The county is located in the northwestern part of the state in the Appalachian Mountain Region. It is bordered by Winston, Cullman, Blount, Jefferson, Tuscaloosa, Fayette, and Marion counties. Walker County is exceeded only by Jefferson County in the production of coal. The county is drained by the Black Warrior River and Mulberry and Sipsey Forks. The county seat is Jasper. Other towns and communities include Carbon Hill, Corona, and Cordova. Fires at the courthouse occurred in 1865, 1877, 1886, and 1932. Jasper is on US-78 about 40 miles northwest of Birmingham.
