St. Clair County Alabama
St. Clair County was established on November 20, 1818. The county seat was incorporated and named "Ashville" in honor of John Ash. In 1836, a portion of St. Clair County was separated to establish Cherokee County and DeKalb County. In 1866, after the Civil War, a northeast section of the county was used to create Etowah County. The county was named after General Arthur St. Clair, who came to America from Scotland as an officer in the British Army in the French and Indian War. He settled in America and served as a general in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. He also was the only Governor of the Northwest Territory.
It has one county seat in Ashville and another in Pell City. While other counties in Alabama have multiple courthouses, St. Clair County is the only county in Alabama with more than one county seat.
