Prattville is a
city located in Autauga County, Alabama and
partially in Elmore County, Alabama. As of
the 2000 census, the population of the city
is 24,303. The city is the county seat of
Autauga County, Alabama. It is nicknamed
"The Fountain City" due to the many artesian
wells in the area. The city was founded in
1839 by well-known industrialist and
architect Daniel Pratt.
What is now Prattville was largely inhabited
by Native Americans and a few settlers when
Daniel Pratt, a native of Temple, New
Hampshire, first observed the Autauga Creek
in the 1830's.
Pratt purchased approximately 1000 acres
from Joseph May at $21.00 an acre, and set
out to build his manufacturing facilities
and the town along the banks of the Autauga
creek. This location was chosen because the
creek could supply power to the Gin's
Felony and misdemeanor criminal court records.
