About Opelika, Alabama

After the signing of the Treaty of Cusseta by the U.S government and the Creek Nation, the Opelika region was settled for the first time in 1832. The treaty brought the land and all Creek territories east of the Mississippi River under the control of the United States government. Opelika, which means "large swamp", retained its Creek name even though the U.S. now owned the territory.

Opelika, two decades after its settlement, was chartered as an independent town on February 9, 1854. This was due to its rapid growth. The Montgomery & West Point Railroad Company's railroad lines traversed Opelika and were a major mode of transport for unprocessed cotton from the northern and southern regions.

Opelika received a new charter later in 1870 and continued its rapid growth. Between 1870 and 1900, the town nearly doubled its size.

Opelika's downtown was crowded with saloons that served railroad workers and other men. Railroads made it a point to direct passengers to hide under the windows as they passed through town because of the frequent gunfire from intoxicated patrons.

Two factions claimed to be the rulers of the city government in 1882. One was known as the "Bar room", headed by Mayor Dunbar and a saloonkeeper. The other was known as "Citizens". A dozen men were injured in a riot that occurred in December-November 1882. A few people were eventually killed. Dunbar refused to surrender control of the city to the Citizens, who had claimed it via elections. The state legislature removed the charter of the city and sent the militia in to restore order after continued violence. Five commissioners were appointed by the legislature to manage the city. This situation continued until 1899. The legislature restored the charter of the city that year.
