Beginnings [1,2]

The area that would become the City of Trussville was settled by Warren Truss sometime prior to 1820. He built a mill along the Cahaba and the settlement became known as "Truss."

Although the Town of Trussville was not incorporated until 1947, Trussville's major development began in the 1880s. Prior to the Civil War Trussville was an agricultural center. During the late nineteenth century, two railroads, the Louisville and Nashville Railroad and the Alabama and Chattanooga Railroad Company, brought Northern investors and therefore industrial development to town.
