The Alabama Legislature established Randolph County on December 18, 1832, following the Indian Removal of Creek people. It was named after John Randolph, a prominent Virginia congressman. Randolph County was one of many counties that resulted from the Treaty of Cusseta's last Creek cession, which was ratified on March 24, 1832. It is located in the Piedmont region that stretches from Alabama to Pennsylvania.
According to the first white settlers, the county was home to the "purest and coldest freestone water in all of America." It was also known for its gently rolling hills. Randolph County's first county seat was established at Hedgeman Triplett's Ferry, on the west bank of the Big Tallapoosa River. It is located approximately 10 miles west of Wedowee, Alabama.
The commissioners moved the county seat to Wedowee in 1835. This is the location of Randolph County's central seat, at the Little Tallapoosa River fork. Wedowee was named for a Creek chief Wah-wah-nee, who lived in a nearby village. After the Creek were expelled, the European-American settlement was built near this site.
The county was originally developed for agriculture, specifically cotton plantations. These were operated by African-American slaves who came from the Upper South or migrants. It was located adjacent to the Black Belt of Alabama. This was an area of plantation growth in the highlands where short-staple cotton was grown. Many African Americans lived in the area after the Civil War as tenant farmers and sharecroppers but moved on to other opportunities in the second half of the 20th Century. Below is a table that shows the decline in population between 1920 and 1970. This shows the demographic change. This is due to the history of cotton farming, where 20% of the population was African American in 2010.
