Vienna Alabama

Vienna Alabama

Vienna is an unincorporated community in Pickens County, Alabama. Vienna was a prosperous river port from the 1830s until the American Civil War, situated along the eastern shore of the Tombigbee River on the southwestern border of the county. It declined rapidly in importance with the building of a railroad through Pickens County following the war. In 1917 the post office closed and this marked the end of Vienna’s official status as a town.
An important ferry crossing for north-south travel from Pickens County to Sumter County, Alabama. Ferry was still in use in 1920.

The area of Vienna is in private ownership. Stone monument at site of town and an unnamed cemetery.
