Hobson City, Alabama, is a small town 65 miles east of Birmingham and 88 miles west of Atlanta, Georgia. It is the oldest black municipality in the state. Located in Calhoun County, Alabama the community was named for Richmond Pearson Hobson, a hero in the Spanish-American War.

Hobson City early founders had faith to believe in building a town. Now we must use that same faith to sustain Hobson City future.
