One source said the town’s name comes from a family of homesteaders from South Carolina who settled in the area in the early 19th century. However, another states that the original name of the village, Chepultepec, probably named for the Battle of Chapultepec in the Mexican-American War, was changed to “Allgood” in December 1915. A local lime manufacturer believed he was not getting repeat business because of the difficulty in spelling the name of the village and persuaded the local postmaster to change the name, with the postmaster giving the village his own name of Allgood. The town was formally incorporated in 1959. In 2010, it became the first locality in Alabama to achieve a Hispanic plurality.

Location of Goldville in Tallapoosa County Alabama DemocraticLuntz

Goldville is a town in Tallapoosa County. The population was 55 at the 2010 census, up from 37 in 2000.

The name of the area derives from the discovery of large gold deposits in the area. The area was so popular with prospecters that at one time the temporary post office of Goldville handled more mail in a day than New York City.

The historical monument in the town reads: “Goldville, Alabama incorporated on January 25, 1843 was at one time one of the largest cities in Alabama with a population of near 5,000. With the coming of the California gold rush in 1849 the city became a dormant municipality later to be reinstated on July 9, 1973.”

Oakman Alabama

Population: 763

Oakman is a town in Walker County. At the 2010 census the population was 789, down from 944 in 2000. Oakman’s population according to the 2010 Census was 789. Of that number, 80.9 percent of respondents identified themselves as white, 18.4 percent as African American, 0.5 percent as two or more races, 0.1 percent as Native American, and 0.1 percent as Hispanic or Latino. The town’s median household income, according to 2010 estimates, was $30,395, and the per capita income was $16,976.

Initially named Day Gap, it was renamed Oakman and incorporated in 1895. The Oakman area initially was settled in the early to mid-1820s. The community was first called York after the first post office of that name, which opened in 1860. It was renamed Day’s Gap after a prominent local landowner, part of whose property consisted of a valley (known in local parlance as a “gap”) between two mountains that led into Oakman. Oakman first appeared on the 1890 census as the town of Day (or Day’s) Gap.

The community remained relatively small until 1884, when a line of the Georgia Pacific Railroad came through and made Oakman a shipping center for the county. The opening of a coal mine nearby also contributed to Oakman’s growth. Oakman was the first city in Walker County to install telephone lines.

The Old York USA Heritage and Music Park in Oakman features 20 period buildings, some dating back to the Confederacy and including the first post office in Oakman, as well as a restaurant and gift shop.
The Stephenson House and the Tubbs Cemetery near Oakman are listed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage. The Stephenson House also is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
