Alabama State Flag
|Coosa County was created by the
Alabama legislature on 1832 Dec. 18, from lands included in the
Creek Indian Treaty of Cusseta, 1832 Mar. 24. It was named for
the Coosa River, which forms its western boundary. The word
"Coosa" is believed to mean "cane-brake" in the Alibama-Kossati
Indian dialect. Coosa County lies in the east-central part of
the state. It is bordered by Shelby, Talladega, Clay,
Tallapoosa, Elmore, and Chilton counties. It currently comprises
675 square miles. A site on Albert Crumpler's plantation on
Hatchemalega Creek was chosen as the county seat and given the
name Lexington. In 1835 the name was changed to Rockford. Other
towns and communities include Equality, Nixburg, and Goodwater.
