About Hale County

Hale County was created by the Alabama legislature on January 30, 1867.  It was named for Lt. Col. Stephen Fowler Hale, a Confederate Officer from Greene County, killed at Gaines' Mill, Virginia. 

Hale County is located in West Central Alabama.  Much of the newly formed county had been the part of Greene County east of the Black Warrior River.  This river is the boundary between Greene and Hale today.  The remainder of Hale County was taken from Perry County, Marengo County, and Tuscaloosa County.  Hale County is bordered by Tuscaloosa, Bibb, Perry, Marengo and Greene Counties.  It encompasses 661 square miles. 

Hale County has a population of approximately 18,111.  It has four high schools, four elementary schools and one private school.

Greensboro is the county seat.  Other towns and communities include Akron, Gallion, Moundville, Newbern, and Sawyerville.

The town of Greensboro claims the title of Alabama's Catfish Capital.  Other agricultural products in Hale County include beef cattle, soybeans, corn, hay, and timber.     

The Hale County Extension office has nine full-time employees.
