AREA AT A GLANCE
                                     ALABAMA FACTS
Population – Alabama’s population is 4,062,608 ranking 22nd among the states. According to the
1990 census the state’s population had increased 4 ½ percent over the 1980 census figure of
3,893,978. The population-density is 79 persons per square mile, with the US average at 69 per
square mile. Population distribution is 60 percent urban, 40 percent rural. The larger cities are
Birmingham (265,968), Mobile (196,278), Montgomery (187,106), Huntsville (159,789), Tuscaloosa
(77,759), and Dothan (53,589).

State Bird – In 1927, the Yellowhammer (Colaptes Aratus), also known as a flicker, was designated
as the official state bird. It is a member of the woodpecker family. The yellowhammer became the
state bird, due to its association with the Alabama Confederate soldiers. The Yellowhammer has gray
feathers with yellow patches, showing red polka dots on its breast and a red band around its neck, gives
an appearance similar to the gray and yellow colors of the Confederate uniforms. There is a story of a
new company of Confederate soldiers from Huntsville entering a Confederate camp, which upon arrival
in their flashy new uniforms were referred to, in jest, as the Yellowhammers. The name stuck. Soon
after, Alabama Confederate soldiers became known as the Yellowhammers. The Confederate
Veterans in Alabama wore yellowhammer feathers during reunions as a sign of pride in their duty
served.

State Flag – The state flag features a white background with a crimson St. Andrew’s cross, crossing
diagonally from corner to corner. In 1895, the flag was adopted as the state flag.

State Flower – In 1959, the Camellia replaced the goldenrod as the state flower. Colors of the flower
are white, pink, and red, as well as a blend of three. A particular species of the Camellia has not been
designated, hence the color variety. However, the red camellia is the accepted state flower.

State Salute – Flag of Alabama I salute thee. To thee I pledge my allegiance, my service, and my life.

State Seal – The state seal is round and bordered by the words, “Alabama Great Seal”. Within the
circle, a map of Alabama is placed in the center and is bordered by Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia,
and Florida, along with the part of the Gulf of Mexico, which is named the Mississippi
Delta, being the end of the Mississippi River.

State Tree – Southern Pine (Longleaf). In 1949, the Southern Pine was designated to be the Alabama
State tree. The original bill proposed, however, nominated the Longleaf Pine to be the state tree. The
four largest groups of pine species are the longleaf, the slash pine, the loblolly and the longleaf.

                              City of Phenix City, Alabama
                                       1820-1964

                                        The City of Girard
                                               1890

Sometime prior to 1820, Girard was established as a trading post in the Creek Indian Territory of
Alabama on the West Bank of the Chattahoochee River opposite a white settlement that later was
named Columbus, Georgia. The north boundary of Girard being the north boundary of Russell County is
presently known as 15th Street North.

The Capital of the Creek Nation at this time was situated about 8 miles south of Girard in Alabama and
was called Coweta.

Prior to this area being established as a White Community, a town was laid out by a member of a New
York Engineering Firm, Edward Lloyd Thomas, and was designated Marshall’s Reserve. This land
area was sold to a Columbus Real Estate interest for $35,000.00 by a half-breed Indian named Ben
Marshall. It was later sold for a total of $100,000.00.

The City was named for a young Philadelphia Philanthropist and slave dealer, Stephen Girard, who
acquired much of the land in this area. When Russell County was formed December 18, 1832, Girard
became the County Seat; the first session of Court convened there October 14, 1833. With the
population at 3,840 the City of Girard was officially incorporated by an Act of the Alabama Legislature
H.B.-333 on December 8, 1890. A Mr. West served as its first Mayor.

In 1846, a corporation headed by Samuel G. Ingersoll and Associates was granted a charter to build a
railroad from Ingersoll' s Hill in the town of Girard in the direction of Crawford. This railroad later
became the Central of Georgia.
Russell County Seat moved from Girard to Crockettville, presently Crawford, in 1842. Russell County
Seat moved from Crawford to Seale, Alabama in 1868.

Population growth of the City of Girard by Federal Census:
        1900: 3,840             1910: 4,214           1920: 4,942

                                      City of Phenix City
                                             1883
The City of Phenix City was first incorporated as the Town of Brownville by an Act of the Alabama
Legislature H.B.#585 on February 23, 1883. The town of Brownville was situated north of the Town of
Girard in Lee County, with its Southern boundary being the northern boundary of Girard, which is
presently known a 15th Street North. The County Seat of Lee County was Opelika.

T.S. Young was Elected Brownville’s first Mayor and presided at the first meeting of the Board of
Alderman held March 27, 1883 in the Masonic Building. This small residential community was
established prior to the Civil War and by 1880 had a population of 2,224. Although the town was
officially named Brownville, the Post Office serving it was called Lively, and the Central of Georgia
Railroad designated its depot, Knights Station. On February 19, 1889 the Town of Brownville by an
Act of the Alabama Legislature H.B. #679 was officially changed to Phenix City, named for the Old
Phoenix Mills in Columbus.

Population growth of the City of Phenix City prior to the annexation of the City of Girard by Federal
Census:
        1890: 3,700             1900: 4,163              1910: 4,555              1920: 5,432



                                Communities Consolidated
                                         1923

The Cities of Girard and Phenix City were consolidated August 9, 1923 with a total population of
10,374. Soon afterward an effort was made to change the City’s name to Brandon in Honor of
Governor William W. Brandon who signed the consolidation bill. However, after technical difficulties,
the original name was retained.

The City of Phenix City has been governed at various times by a Board of Alderman and a 5-man and
3-man Board of Commissioners. Dr. Ashby Floyd was appointed Mayor with Homer D. Cobb, Sr.,
Isaac L Moses, Clyde M. Knowles, Sr., and Claude B. Gullatt, Sr., serving as commissioners
immediately after the consolidation. The 5-Man Board of Commissioners was decreed unconstitutional,
and a Board of Alderman governed the City from December 1923 until September 1928.

The City’s Government headed by a 3-Man Board of Commissioners from 1928 until 1947 changed to
a 5-Man Board for the period from 1947 until 1953, when it reverted to a 3-Man Board. In October
1977, the present Council-City Manager form of government was adopted.
                         The Original City Hall of Phenix City


The original City Hall of Phenix City was built in three stages between the early 1900's and mid 1940's.

The Old building was demolished in 1963 to make room for construction of the City’s new Municipal
Building.

The first section of the building was constructed in 1909 or 1910 and for the next 12 to 13 years served
as the municipal building for the old City of Girard. In 1923, following the consolidation of Phenix City
and Girard into a single City, the building became the municipal headquarters for the consolidated area.

The first expansion of the old building was completed in 1927 with the addition of a City Jail costing
approximately $19,000.00. The unit was built on the south side of the first section and at the time of
demolition was serving as a combination Police Headquarters and Jail.

In 1932, Russell County traded the Marvyn Community, in the northwest section of the county, to Lee
County for a portion of Phenix City in Lee.

Following the trade a northern district of Russell County was established in Phenix City. County
Officials set up office on the first floor of Old City Hall and the City Clerk was moved to the second
floor of the building. In 1938, the present Russell County Courthouse was built, and all County Offices,
both for the southern and northern districts were moved to the new building.

The final addition of the City Hall Building was constructed on the north side of the municipal building in
1944 and in the years that followed, it housed the Commission chamber, and the Offices of the City
Clerk.

The rates for property taxes in Alabama are as follows:

1. The state tax is 6.5 mills.

2. County and City mileage vary among the various jurisdictions. The maximum combined rate            is
59 mills.

3. The County Governing Body, the legislature and the voters of the taxing jurisdiction must
approve any increase in the county and municipal tax rate. Therefore, there is no taxation
increase without the specific approval of the residents subject to the tax.

4. All non-exempt property is categorized under one of four distinct classifications and assessed       and
subject to the assessment ratios indicated below:
Class I.         All property of utilities used in such utilities: 30% of assessed value
Class II.        All property not otherwise classified 20% of assessed value.
Class III.       All agricultural, forest and single-family owner occupied residential property including
                 mobile homes and historical sites: 10% of assessed value.

                 personal or private use and not for hire, rent, or compensation: 15%

Note: To calculate an actual tax, take the assessed value, reduce it to the defined or appropriate
percentage as shown above, and then multiply by the mileage rate. The value of homes as
property for taxation may have a further homestead exemption and other tax reductions for
person over the age of 65.

present value. The state tax rate multiplier is .0065, and there may be similarly small-added millage rates
