In 1866, Col. John Cullmann searched for land for American citizens and immigrants alike and settled on the area that is now Cullman, Alabama. In 1873, John Cullmann brought the first five families to where Cullman stands today. Over the next 24 years, Cullmann would bring 100,000 people to the area, which was incorporated as Cullman, after its founder--with one slight spelling discrepancy, introduced in 1874.
