city in and the county seat of Etowah
County, northeastern Alabama, United States,
approximately 60 miles northeast of
Birmingham. It is the principal city of and
is included in the Gasden, AL Metropolitan
Statistical Area. As of the 2000 census, the
population of the city is 38,978.
It was at one time the state's 2nd most
important industrial center, trailing only
Mobile. The two cities were important
shipping centers: Gadsden for riverboats and
Mobile for international trade. Up until the
1980s, Gadsden was almost totally dependent
on heavy industy, including Goodyear Tire,
and Republic Steel. After virtually
crumbling in the 1970s and 1980s, Gadsden
decided its best course of action was to
stop being dependent on industry, and
shedding its "company town" image.
