Chambers County, AL


Chambers County was created by an act of the Alabama General Assembly on Dec. 18, 1832 from former Creek Indian territory. The treaty with the Creeks stipulated that the head of each Indian family was to receive 320 acres of land and the chiefs 640 acres. Most of the Indian land ended up in the hands of white land speculators and most of the native Americans were forced out of Chambers County after the Creek War of 1836-1837. Some settled in Randolph, Macon, Tallapoosa or Talladega counties for a short while, before finally heading further west.
