The city of Warrior is the northernmost city in Jefferson County. This October on the 15th from 9 am to 3 pm a celebration of the city is planned.
Come out and join the party.
Creek Indian Town
Once the home of a Creek Indian Town, the city of Warrior now stands where the Creek Indians were defeated in 1823. The first school was built in the area even before Alabama achieved statehood. The city was named for its proximity to the Warrior coal field, which was named for its location on the Black Warrior River.
