Industrial History

Although the Hueytown area has a history of farming, it has also been a part of both the steel and coal mining history of Jefferson County.

William & Joseph Woodward formed The Woodward Iron Company on New Year's Eve, 1881. With William as company president and Joseph as company secretary, the brothers proceeded to purchase the plantation of Fleming Jordan. The plantation had originally been created by his father, Mortimer Jordan, in 1828. The plantation included portions of present day Hueytown and was one of the largest cotton plantations in the area. On the site of Mrs. Jordan's rose garden, Woodward Furnace #1 began operation on August 17, 1883. A second furnace went into blast in January, 1887 and the two furnaces had a daily output of 165 tons. A mine also went into operation in the Dolomite community which is today mostly within the City of Hueytown. By 1909, there was a third furnace and a daily capacity of 250,000 tons with a workforce of 2000 men on the payroll. By the 1920's Woodward Iron's many expansions made it one of the nation's largest suppliers of pig iron. By this time, Joseph's son, A. H. (Rick) Woodward, had become Chairman of the Board of Woodward Iron and was one of the most prominent citizens of Alabama. He is probably best remembered as the owner of The Birmingham Barons baseball team and the namesake of Rickwood Field, the nation's oldest professional baseball park. In 1968, Mead Corporation acquired Woodward Iron just as the steel industry was going into decline. In 1973, the last blast furnace closed and Koppers Company bought the remaining coke production plant. Eventually, even Koppers closed and much of the 1200 acre site today has been re-developed for lighter industrial use. [3]

Coal mining began about the start of the 20th century at Virginia City. Today this section of Hueytown contains mostly subdivisons of homes (Virginia Estates and Edenwood). However, some of the original buildings from its mining past, including the superintendent's house, multiple supervisors houses, and two company built churches still remain.

Some sources say veteran prospector Truman H. Aldrich assembled these lands as part of his extensive coal properties, others cite two red-headed brothers, George and E. T. Shuler as having opened the Virginia Mine in 1902. Having recently arrived from Virginia City, Nevada, they named their new mine after that western city. A mine disaster in February, 1905, demolished their plans, as an underground explosion, one of the worst recorded mining disasters in Alabama history entombed the entire day crew and caved in the mine entrance. When rescuers finally cleared the 1,500 foot deep shaft, they found 106 dead men and twenty dead mules. In 1936, Republic Steel purchased the mine and it continued to be worked until September, 1953, when it closed permanently.[4]

Education

Hueytown's public schools are a part of the Jefferson County school system. Schools serving the city include: Hueytown High School, Hueytown Middle School (formerly Pittman Middle School), Hueytown Elementary School, Concord Elementary School and North Highland Elementary School. Four private religious schools, Deeper Life Academy, Garywood Christian School, Brooklane Baptist Academy, and Rock Creek Academy are located in Hueytown.

The mascot for Hueytown High School is the Golden Gopher. The mascot for Hueytown Middle School (formerly Pittman Middle School) is the Purple Panther.

Recently the Hueytown High School Marching, Symphonic, and Jazz Bands have gained some prestige by playing at the Alabama Music Educators Association (AMEA) and a dual concert with the University Of Alabama At Birmingham's Symphonic and Wind ensembles.

Sports & Recreation

The abbreviation HYT (HueYTown) has become a popular term of reference for Hueytown among some of the residents; it is constantly used for sports. (for example HYT football)

Hueytown High School's football team made it to the Alabama State Playoffs in 1974, 1975, 1995, and 2004. They also made the playoffs in 2006, 2007, and 2008, marking the first time in school history to make three straight appearances. The team also tied a school record for wins in '07 with a 10-2 record. On June 18,2009 Hueytown High School's football Coach Jeff Smith resigned . Spain Park High School Assistant Coach Matt Scott became the new Head Coach on July 7,2009.

HHS's softball team has won the Alabama State Softball championship three times in four years, 2005 and 2006 as a 5A school and 2008 as a 6A school.

In 1974, the Hueytown High School Wrestling Team won the 4A State Championship under the guidance of then head-wrestling coach, Tony Morton.[8]

In addition to the public school sports programs, Hueytown offers many other community sports programs. For decades the city has enjoyed a very strong Dixie Youth Baseball program for all eligible age groups. Its Dixie Youth teams use facilities at Hueytown's Bud Newell Park and have seen several of its players eventually make it to the Major Leagues. The city also has a very strong girls fastpitch program that is based at Allison-Bonnett Girls Softball Park, also a city facility. Its 6U All-Stars won the Alabama State Championship in the summer of 2009. Hueytown also has a Swim Club and a youth football program.

Hueytown is also home to the Central Alabama Boys & Girls Club, a multi-million dollar facility that provides a variety of sports and recreation opportunities for the youth of the area, focusing primarily on after school and summer programs. It routinely serves more than 300 children each day.

The Alabama Gang

Hueytown was home to one of the dominant racing groups in NASCAR, the Alabama Gang. The city's main thoroughfare, Allison-Bonnett Memorial Drive, takes its name from drivers Bobby Allison, Donnie Allison, Davey Allison, Clifford Allison and Neil Bonnett. The Alabama Gang also includes racing legend Charles "Red" Farmer. Though not considered a member of The Alabama Gang, Bobby and Donnie's older brother Eddie Allison had an active role in NASCAR for many years as a respected engine builder and still resides in Hueytown. His son, Jacob, is a radio personality on Birmingham, Alabama station WJOX. He also resides in Hueytown.

Interestingly, and certainly because of its established motorsports roots, Hueytown was chosen as BMW Motorsport's initial North American base of operations before its first season with the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) in 1975.
