Colbert County Alabama
Colbert County was originally established on February 6, 1867 after it split from Franklin County over political issues after the American Civil War. It was abolished eight months later by an Alabama constitutional convention and then reestablished on February 24, 1870. It was named in honor of brothers George and Levi Colbert, Chickasaw Indian chiefs. George Colbert operated a ferry across the Tennessee River in 1790 near present day Cherokee. The county seat of Colbert County is Tuscumbia.Photo by DailyNetworks CC BY-SA 3.0COLBERT COUNTY COURTHOUSECOUNTY COURTHOUSE
