Lineville Alabama

The Town of Lineville (Crooked Creek) was built on what was at that time the dividing line between Talladega and Randolph Counties, hence the name, Lineville.

The Civil War saw some 56 area men interred in the Old Lineville Cemetery. By the end of the war, Confederate money had become useless and the area suffered hardships. Clay County formed in 1866. The town’s name was officially changed to Lineville in 1870 when it became the temporary seat of government for Clay County.
