What began as land granted to the Kidd family in the 1800's became the Town of Vincent, Alabama. Vincent received its name after one of the Kidd daughters, Anna Bella Vincent. Three significant things happened leading to the incorporation of the Town. The establishment of a school in 1854, the post office, and the building of the railroad in 1887. The Town of Vincent's Charter was enacted into Law by the State Legislature on February 16, 1897.

Vincent has a population of 2003. The Town is progressive while retaining an " Old Towne" feel. Vincent has local shops and K-12 schools in the Shelby County School System.
