Alexander City was first founded in the early-to-mid 19th century, and was incorporated in 1872 as Youngstown, Alabama. The city’s original name came from the founder of the city, James Young, and it was reincorporated as Alexander City sometime during the late 19th century. The railroad came to the town in 1873, which helped to spur growth, though a fire in 1902 laid waste to much of the town. Rebuilding efforts were rapid, however, and the fire even helped spur a bit of growth. Today, Alexander City is primarily a recreational town, as mentioned, with much of its economy based on tourism and other tourism-related industries.
