Chatom Overview

Chatom is a small town of almost 1300 located in rural Southwest Alabama. The population has grown by 8% since 2000. Chatom is kind of "off the beaten path" as it is not on any major highways. Chatom is the county seat of Washington County. The Washington County Courthouse is relatively new; and prettier than many of the newer monstrosities we build now. Washington County was established in 1800 and was the first county in what would become Alabama. Washington County included all the land for what is now 26 counties.

There are a couple of nice veteran’s memorials on the courthouse grounds.
