Northport history:

Here is a history page for Northport.

Northport was settled in 1813 when a ferry was established over the Black Warrior River. The principal crop at the time was cotton and Steamboats used the River for navigation to Mobile and Northport was the setting off point. Northport was first known as Kentuck or Canetuck, but eventually, at some time during the later 1800's, the settlement became known as North Port. This was due to the fact that it was a port on the north side of the river from Tuscaloosa with facilities for loading all the cotton brought to the river. It also received all the goods needed by the surrounding area.
The incorporation date of Northport: 1871
