About Crane Hill
Crane Hill is a community in Cullman County, Alabama, United States, located in the southwestern portion of the county. The community of Crane Hill can trace its history back to 1806, when the first settlers recorded their land titles. This area is named after the Sandhill Crane who fished the streams and roosted on a hill located just north of Mt. Zion Road and part of the Kirby Lay property. It was from this large hill of roosting cranes that Crane Hill took its name.
This area is nestled at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains, it offers a landscape with rock out crops and graceful meadows all well endowed with indigenous plants, wild flowers and a wide variety of wild animals. Smith Lake and many fresh water streams wind through the hills and rocks offering residents an opportunity to fish and enjoy one of the most attractive locations in Alabama. Many residents are family in this close knit community and several families have the distinction of having lived as many as six generations in this area.
