About Hoover

The city's name is derived from the last names of Thomas H. Hoover, a local judge and politician who oversaw the initial development of the town, and his son J. Edgar Hoover, who was an attorney for U.S Steel Corporation in New York City at that time but later became famous as head of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The two men were responsible for getting a railroad line to come through Alabama territory to connect Birmingham with other major cities such as Mobile and Montgomery; they also helped develop coal mines in Walker County near Jasper which led to industrial growth along Red Mountain between Birmingham and Jasper during this period. Hoover is located at (33.567303, -86.829093).
