Chambers County was created by an act of the Alabama General Assembly on December 18 1832, from Creek Nation territory. It is located in the east-central portion of the state, and is bounded on the east by the Chattahoochee River . The county is named for Henry Chambers, a United States Senator from Alabama (1825-26). The location of the county seat was selected in 1833 and the town of LaFayette was built specifically for that purpose. chambers county courthouse
