Richmond AL, USA

Richmond AL (Alabama), also known as Warrenton, is an unincorporated community in Dallas County, Alabama.

Richmond gained its name from Richmond County, New York, the birthplace for several early settlers, most notably the Crocherons. Richmond has one site included on the National Register of Historic Places, the Street Manual Training School. Elm Bluff Plantation, owned by John Jay Crocheron, is nearby in Elm Bluff.

Warrenton was named for Warren County, Virginia by the Smiths, an early family that settled in the area. Warrenton served as the county seat of Marshall County from 1841 to 1848. A post office operated under the name Warrenton from 1836 to 1906. Warrenton was the hometown of Thomas Atkins Street, a major in the 49th Alabama Infantry Regiment and Oliver Day Street, who served as U.S. District Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama from 1907 to 1914 and served as special assistant to the Attorney General of the United States.
