Cullman County
Founded: 1873
The parish seat is the City of Cullman.

Cullman was founded in 1873, by Colonel John G. Cullmann, a German refugee who had arrived in America in 1865. After many years of searching, in 1873, Col. Cullmann negotiated an agreement to act as agent for a tract of land 349,000 acres in size, owned by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad Company, on which he established a colony for German immigrants. Five German families moved to the area in March 1873, and in 1874, the town was incorporated and named after Colonel Cullmann.

Cullman County was created by the Alabama State Legislature on 24 January 1877, from portions of Blount, Mogan, and Winston Counties. Over the next twenty years, Col. Cullmann encouraged around 10,000 Germans to immigrate to the United States, with many settling in the Cullman area.

Cullman County lies in the north-central part of Alabama about 50 miles between Birmingham and Huntsville, and is surrounded by Morgan and Marshall Counties to the north, Marshall and Blount counties to the East, Walker County on the South and Winston on the West. The City of Cullman is the county seat.
