Phil Campbell was the first town in Alabama to be named after an individual using both their first and last names.
In the 1880’s, a railroad company was laying track from Florence to Birmingham, and they passed through Franklin County. A local land owner contacted the project engineer of the railroad crew and promised any community that developed around a sidetrack and depot that was adjacent to his land would be named after the engineer. The sidetrack was laid and the depot built and in 1911 the town of Phil Campbell was incorporated in honor of who else, Mr. Phil Campbell, the project engineer.
The town lies in the beautiful hill country between the Shoals area and Birmingham. It’s scenic beauty and rural atmosphere make it an ideal place to live. Some of the best fishing and hunting can be found right here in Phil Campbell.
Phil Campbell is also the home of Dismals Canyon. Readers Digest showcased the canyons in their Off the Beaten Path feature as “one of Americas most interesting and still uncrowded places to visit.”
Phil Campbell is also home to Northwest Shoals Community College, Alabama’s first Junior College. The college provides access to post-secondary education for citizens of the rural communities of Northwest Alabama.
