Jasper, a city that gets its name in honor of American Revolutionary War Hero Sergeant William Jasper, is located in the north central quadrant of Alabama. Jasper is located and is the county seat of Walker County. A relatively small city with some 14,000 citizens, the city takes up 28.6 square miles of land. The city has several places listed on the National Register of Historical Places, including the John Hollis Bankhead House, Jasper Downtown Historic District, and the Baptist Walker County Hospital. Even though the city is not a large metropolis, it sees quite a few wrongful deaths from trucking and motor vehicle accidents given its close proximity to Birmingham.
