Located in the northeastern section of Alabama, Gadsden is the county seat of Etowah County and is the most populated city therein. In the city’s early history, it was once one of Alabama’s top trading cities and had an incredibly busy port.
Large ships coming downriver from Mobile’s seaports would drop their shipments in Gadsden where they were then broken down into smaller shipments and distributed throughout the midwest via the Coosa River.
Unfortunately, the city was hit hard during the deindustrialization era, which caused a sharp decline in Gadsden’s population and hit its economy hard. Although the city once had a population of almost 56,000, it has been steadily declining since 1970. Today, only around 35,000 people remain in Gadsden.

Unfortunately, Gadsden has a low median income and a poverty rate that’s almost 30%, making it one of Alabama’s poorer cities. Despite the unfortunate turn of its population and economy, the city had done its best to slowly revitalize public areas of the city in order to encourage more people to stay and do business here.
According to the 2019 U.S. Census Bureau, there are currently 35,000 residents living in Gadsden, a 5.3% decline from the last survey. Below is the cultural demographic breakdown of the area:
- 36.2% Black/African American
- 58.3% White
- 6.6% Hispanic/Latino
- 1.1% Asian
The median income for Gadsden residents is $32,853 and the poverty rate is just over 28%- a number that’s quite high for Alabama.
- In the 1800s, Gadsden was an important trading center for the state of Alabama and the midwest. The only city with a busier port was Mobile.
- Despite its population and industrial decline in the mid-20th-Century, Gadsden was awarded an All-American City Award in 1991.
