ALICEVILLE HAS BEEN A GREAT PLACE TO CALL HOME SINCE 1907

 

In 1902, Mr. John Taylor Cochrane purchased some land on which Aliceville now sets. He had the land surveyed into lots, blocks, and streets that were laid out in an orderly plan. He was also one of the organizers of the town’s first bank, Aliceville Bank and Trust, and served as its first president. The new town was then incorporated as a municipality of the State of Alabama on March 18, 1907.
