Plantersville is an unincorporated community in Dallas County, Alabama, United States.[2] It lies near the county's border with Autauga and Chilton counties. Plantersville was named for the local cotton planters and plantations. The town is home to Dallas County High School and J. E. Terry Elementary School.

History

The original name of the town was Corinth. The post office was established in 1867.

Pickering's Grocery Store has been replaced by a nice gas station and convenience store. Noodie’s BBQ closes down due to Mr. Noodie retiring, but you can still purchase his sauce from many regional grocers.
