Coosa County

Coosa County was created in 1832 from lands ceded in the Creek Indian Treaty of Cusseta
and from parts of Montgomery county. Hernando DeSoto was probably the first white man to
visit what is now Coosa County.

It is named for the Coosa River which forms the county's western
boundary with Chilton county.

The county seat is Rockford  which was originally named Pondalassa.

Other cities are: 
Goodwater(the largest), 
Equality, Kellyton and Weogufka.
 

Places of interest include:
Hatchet Creek which is known for
its beds of Cahaba Lily

Old Rock Jail in Rockford

 Oakachoy covered bridge
