More > more. Organized in 1877, the county is the second youngest county in the state. Despite its relative recent creation, Cullman has a rich and often tumultuous past.

Then there's the little known Cleveland County, the Bug Tussle Mail Fraud Caper, a vanished railroad line, and the man who foretold of a railroad wreck at Holmes Gap. These, and other little known, secret, and hidden topics make up the history of Cullman. This book is not a definitive or comprehensive history of Cullman, but attempts to fill in a few of the gaps and illuminate topics skimmed over or skipped in other books. Those who think they know the history of Cullman will be surprised and amazed at what they find within these pages!< Less
