Rockford is the county seat for Coosa County, Alabama. Coosa County was created by an act of theRockford Alabama pictures Alabama State Legislature on December 18, 1832 and a site on Hatchet Creek was chosen as the county seat and given the name Lexington. In 1835 the name was changed to Rockford.

Rockford, a quiet town with a simple four-way traffic stop, is located about halfway between Wetumpka and Sylacauga, Alabama on US Highway 231 and Alabama Highway 21.

I have gone through the town for over 30 years, but had only given it a quick glance as I traveled up and down Alabama Hwy 21. This trip was different. I have been reading about the legendary tales of "Fred the Town Dog" and I was interested in seeing what it was about.

While I was searching for Fred, I was pleasantly surprised and pleased at what I found. Since myRockford Alabama pictures initial posting of my adventures finding "Fred the Town Dog" I have noticed that each time I stop at the four-way intersection in Rockford, I always have a smile on my face as I glance over at Fred's Memorial next to the county jail museum.
