Stevenson City is located in Alabama’s Jackson County, a few kilometers from Chattanooga City, Tennessee. Initially, the land where the city is situated belonged to the Cherokees until the settlement began to expand after the railroad was introduced
In the early 1850s, Vernon K. Stevenson and John F. Anderson bought this land area, forming Stevenson City. It was named after the aforementioned landowner.
Today, the city is home to various social amenities, including schools, which comprise the Jackson County School System. There are three main schools: an elementary school, a middle school, and a high school.
