History

 

 

 

Crossville is a farming community in Northeast Alabama, nestled in the area where TennesseeGeorgia and Alabama come together. It is situated on a sandstone plateau range known colloquially as Sand Mountain, but, the native peoples had called Raccoon Mountain (this is noted several places, including on page 478 of the History of Alabama and Dictionary of Alabama Biography, Vol. 1, by Thomas McAdory Owen, Marie Bankhead Owen_. It holds some historical significance for having figured tangentially in the Creek War. The area's soil, game, climate, and proximity to rivers and streams proved attractive to settlers, the majority of whom were drawn there from neighboring states following the expulsion of the indigenous Creeks.

Sand Mountain lay in an area that included disputed borders between the Creeks and the Cherokee. While Alabama became a state in 1819, until the 1830s, much of Northern Alabama was still officially Cherokee territory. However, White settlement in the area increased steadily, coming to a head with the gold rush in the nearby mountains of Northwest Georgia. While gold supplies began to dwindle, soon eclipsed by the California Gold Rush, the settlement by White farmers continued and played prominently in the expulsion of Cherokee, Creek and Choctaw nations from the area. That expulsion is called the Trail of Tears, considered an act of genocide because of the thousands who died on the journey, and the forced removal of native peoples from their home territories. (There are numerous references which corroborate this. Also, in nearby Fort Payne, which lies across the valley and at the foot of next-door Lookout Mountain, there is a historical sign marking the town as one of the starting points for the Trail of Tears, and also the area where Sequoyah lived, who developed the Cherokee alphabet.)

During the times of slavery, Crossville, Sand Mountain and Dekalb County, where Crossville is located, were not major slave areas. This can be verified by a study of census roles which reveal a mostly poor area, where people worked and survived by the labor of their own hands, rather than the forced labor of captive Africans and their descendents. Leading up to the Civil War, DeKalb County was typical of Southern Mountain counties in that it voted against secession from the United States. This can be corroborated by a study of the roster of the votes on this issue, county by county. In fact, there was serious discussion among Northern Alabama and East Tennessee counties about forming a proposed state of Nickajack, rather than going along with secession (^ Fleming, Walter L., Civil War and Reconstruction in Alabama. New York: Columbia University Press, 1905, pp 109–111.).

During the Civil War, Dekalb county families, particularly families from mountain terrains such as Sand and Lookout Mountain tended, at first, to avoid fighting, since it was considered a "rich man's war", and not of particular interest to mountain people. However, as the war progressed, many Dekalb County families fought for Union cavalries, notably, the First Tennessee and Alabama Independent Vidette Cavalry and the First Alabama Cavalry United States Volunteers. One example of this can be seen by looking at the rosters of Southern unionists who fought for the First Tennessee and Alabama Independent Vidette Cavalry, which can be found at http://www.reocities.com/chedar0001/videtterosters.html or that are provided on this webpage regarding the First Alabama: http://www.1stalabamacavalryusv.com/ . A perusal of the rosters will reveal family names that to this day are prominent in the area. Also, the following reference shows that the Cavalry heavily drew from Sand Mountain families: ^ Potter, Johnny, First Tennessee & Alabama Independent Vidette Cavalry Roster, 1863–1864, Mountain Press, 1995. The First Alabama Cavalry was particularly notable in that it was one of the few units that was actually integrated (http://www.1stalabamacavalryusv.com/roster/colored.asp ).

Crossville's name, given to it by James A. Copeland (1880-1964—not to be confused with outlaw James Copeland), was meant to reflect its many crossroads.

In the mid-19th century, mail was brought through Crossville from Rome, Georgia and Guntersville, Alabama via stagecoach. Soon the town had its first U.S. Post Office, with A.C. Copeland serving as the first postmaster. In 1888, George Wyatt Justice established the first business in Crossville, and in 1903, W.B. Jones installed machinery for his cotton mills.His son, Loy Jones (spouse-Sara Jones) followed his foot steps and ran a once successful business in Crossville. Loy and Sara had a daughter named Pam and she had two sons named Blake and Blane Raley. The Jones family was vital to the growth early on in Crossville.

The first church established in the Crossville area was a Methodist Episcopal Church called Pine Bark Church, formed just prior to the American Civil War. The community's first Baptist church was established in 1892 at Union Grove. In 1925, several people started meeting at the high school and formed the First Baptist Church of Crossville. A new sanctuary was built in 1926.

Crossville established its first school, a one-room structure with a single teacher and approximately 50 students, in the late 19th century at Bryant's Chapel Church. The first banking institution was established in 1914 by N.W. Black and Boyce Rains. Soon after, Crossville was granted provisional incorporation, and Charlie J. Crump was appointed first mayor. Little progress was made during his tenure, and the incorporation's dissolution followed quickly thereafter. The town was incorporated a second time on December 21, 1942. Dr. Luther F. Erwin was chosen mayor, and the town government established ordinances and privilege licenses were levied. Collection enforcement was lax, however, resulting in insufficient resources to maintain basic town services. Following this, C.W. (Bill) Russell was elected mayor. He hired Colonel Mack Kilcrease as a legal adviser to mayor and council. This group worked together to establish a solid town government with taxation, collection and basic town services that would become the foundation for the Town of Crossville.
