In the late 1800s and early 1900s, this city was called Gin Town. Because it had the only cotton gin for miles around, the town Graysville and community grew.
As this community grew, the need for businesses and houses of worship grew as well. One street over from this site, the Union Church was established in the early 1900s.
All people of all denominations met and worshiped there as it was the only church for miles around. This city was incorporated November 17, 1945.
The first meeting of the town council took place at the old school house on January 16, 1946. Later that year, the original city council established the Graysville Water Works system.
In 1949, the city council established the Graysville Gas Board which eventually became the Graysville Municipal Gas System. During the 1950s and 1960s, the local coal mines and steel mills attracted families from all over Alabama.
As a result of this growth, Graysville established the City’s first series of home developments and subdivisions. During the 1980s and 1990s, Graysville expanded its city limits by annexing multiple acres in what was then unincorporated in Jefferson County.
