History & History Related Items

Pell City history:

Credited with "founding" Pell City, Sumter Cogswell, an insurance agent, passed through the area in 1890. He loved the natural beauty here so much that he organized the Pell City Iron and Land Company, which bought the land and incorporated the new town in 1891. A couple of years later, he once again came to town and found it nearly deserted after the panic of 1893-94. This time, he made sure it would work and bought the town himself. He was a major supporter of Pell City for the rest of his life.

The town expanded in 1956 when the nearby towns of Eden and Oak Ridge were merged with Pell City. In 1964, the Logan Martin Dam was built forming Logan Martin Lake with 275 miles of shoreline.

In 1956 there was more growth when the neighboring towns of Eden and Oak Ridge mergedwith Pell City. In 1964, all that changed when Logan Martin Dam was built forming a lake with 275 miles of shoreline, so beautifully curved that it was christened "The Lake of a Thousand Coves." 1989, there were 8500 citizens. Less than ten years later, the population reached 16,000.
The incorporation date of Pell City: May 6, 1891
