Walker County Alabama

Walker County was established on December 26, 1823, formed from sections of Marion and Tuscaloosa counties. It was named after Senator John Walker, who represented the state of Alabama in the U.S. Senate from 1819 until 1822. Jasper is the county seat, named after Sgt. William Jasper, a Revolutionary War hero.
