Etowah County Alabama

The county name is from the Cherokee Indian language, which means "edible tree."
Etowah was originally the southern part of DeKalb County; however Baine County was established on December 7, 1866, named for General David W. Baine of the Confederate Army, with its county seat at Gadsden. The county was abolished in 1867, but a year later, Etowah County was created from the same territory. In area, it is the smallest county in Alabama.
Its county seat is Gadsden.
