Hanceville is a small city in Cullman County, Alabama and is the 159th largest city in the state and the 2nd largest community in the county. The city motto is “A Positive and Progressive Community” and it has a mayor/council form of city government with a five-member council. Hanceville has full police and fire services and many other amenities. It is a low-income community when compared to state and national standards and a mixed workforce/job market of both white and blue collar positions and people.

Settlers from South Carolina and Virginia came to settle in the area in about 1820. The first town located in what would one day be Hanceville was the town of Gilmer. The first postmaster of the community, P. H. Kinney changed the towns name to Hanceville in 1872 in memory of his father Hance Kinney, who was the first mayor of the town. The Louisville and Nashville Railroad come through the community in the early 1870s and a depot was quickly established. In its early history, the community was part of Blount County. However, when the county boundaries were revised in 1901 Hanceville officially became a part of Cullman County. In 1966, Wallace State Community College opened its doors. The community is the home of the Our Lady of Angels Monastery which was built in 1999.

Public education in the community is provided by the Cullman County School District, including Hanceville Elementary, Hanceville Middle School, and Hanceville High School. Hanceville Park has amenities like walking trails, picnic areas, a swimming pool, playgrounds and more.
