Pinson Alabama History

Pinson was first settled in the very early nineteenth century, purportedly by some of Gen. Andrew Jackson’s men. The town initially was named Hagood’s Crossroads, after a family of early settlers. The Mount Pinson Ironworks supplied horseshoes to the Confederacy until it was destroyed by Union troops under the command of General John T. Croxton.
