Bibb County Alabama
Bibb County is named in honor of William W. Bibb, a Governor of Alabama. The county seat is Centreville and it's a "prohibition" or dry county. Cabela County was established on February 7, 1818, named for the Cahawba River, (now more commonly "Cahaba River"), ultimately from the Choctaw for "water above." In 1820, it was renamed Bibb County.
