Dallas County Alabama
Dallas County was created by the Alabama territorial legislature on February 9, 1818, from Montgomery County, a portion of the Creek cession of August 9, 1814.
It was named for U.S. Treasury Secretary Alexander J. Dallas of Pennsylvania.
Dallas County is located in the Black Belt region of the west-central portion of the state. It is traversed by the Alabama River and bordered by Perry, Chilton, Autauga, Lowndes, Wilcox, and Marengo counties. Originally, the county seat was at Cahaba, which also served as the state capital for a brief period. In 1865, the county seat was transferred to Selma.
Other towns and communities include Marion Junction, Sardis, Orrville, and Minter.
Dallas County Courthouse - Built in 1901 and remodeled in 1960.
