BIBB County Alabama
Bibb County was originally created as Cahawba County by the Alabama Territorial Legislature on February 7, 1818. Alterations were made to the boundaries in 1818, 1819, 1820, 1821 and 1868. The county name was changed to Bibb on December 4, 1820, in honor of Alabama's first governor, William Wyatt Bibb
The county is located near the center of the state and is drained by the Cahaba River. The terrain is very hilly and there are significant mineral deposits in the northern part of the county. Bibb County encompasses 625 square miles. The county seat is located at Centreville, the site of the falls in the Cahaba River. Other towns include Blocton, West Blocton, Brent, Six Mile and Ashby.
