Welcome to Bibb County Alabama.
We are proud to be part of
of Dixie Project.
Bibb County was created by the Alabama Territorial
Legislature on February 7, 1818. It was one of the first thirteen
counties to be added to the seven already existing when Alabama was
still a part of the Mississippi Territory. Originally, it was called
Cahaba (spelled Cahawba for many years) to preserve the name given
it by the Choctaw Indians, Oka Aba. On December 4, 1820, the State
Legislature renamed it in honor of the late Governor William Wyatt
Bibb. As it was then constituted, it contained much of what is now
the southern part of Shelby County and the western part of Chilton
County. Its present area is 625 square miles.
