Collegeville

Collegeville developed as an industrial area with worker's housing built adjacent to factories and mills owned by the Sloss-Sheffield Corporation, L&N Railroad, Southern Railroad, U. S. Pipe, Jim Walters Corporation and GATX Tank Corporation. The neighborhood took its name from the Lauderdale College elementary school, sometimes called "the college", which operated at the corner of 27th Court and 34th Place North until it burned in 1916.
