Autauga County was established on November 21, 1818, by an act of Alabama Territorial Legislature (one year before Alabama was admitted as a State). As established, the county included present-day Autauga County, as well as Elmore County and Chilton County. At the time, Autauga (aka, Tawasa) Indians lived here, primarily in a village named Atagi (meaning “pure water”) situated on the banks of a creek by the same name (called “Pearl Water Creek” by settlers). Autauga County has a population of 54,571 and the county seat is Prattville. Other towns in Autauga County include Autaugaville, Billingsley, Marbury Pine Level. Autauga County even has one ghost town called Washington which is located on the north bank of the Alabama River, just west of the mouth of Autauga Creek.



    Join the City of Prattville on May 26, 2017 from 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. at the Doster Community Center for a Friday Night Live Dance. Friday Night Live dances are for 5th & 6th grades and Friday Night Jam dances are for 7th & 8th grades who are students of Autauga County Schools. Every child must be on the school roster in order to attend. We encourage all interested parents to chaperone along with Parks and Recreation staff. If you are interested in chaperoning, you must register by calling the office the day before the dance. Children will not be allowed to leave until their parent or guardian arrives to pick them up. This is for your child’s safety.
