About St. Clair County
St. Clair County was created in November of 1818 by the Alabama
Territorial Legislature. It was named for General Arthur St. Clair who
came to America from Scotland as an ensign in the British Navy. The
county seat was incorporated and given the name Ashville, to honor John
Ash. In 1836, a portion of St. Clair County was divided to establish
Cherokee and DeKalb counties. After the Civil War in 1866, a northeast
section of the county was used to create Etowah County.
Current population is 83,593 with 88.2 percent white, 8.6 percent black, and 2.1 percent
hispanic and other. The county has twenty-five educational outlets
which include eleven elementary schools, seven middle schools, seven
high schools, and one community college.
Beef cattle, hay, tomatoes, poultry and sod are major agricultural
crops. Major industries include Avondale Mills and Chandler Mountain
