Zachariah Hagood, one of the earliest physicians in Jefferson County, practiced from 1840 to 1856. Dr. Zachariah, as he was known, almost single handedly populated the settlement in northeastern part of Jefferson County that would eventually bear his name. He came here with his wife and baby. However, the valley was soon teeming with life from the many sons and daughters, Zachariah had 21 children from three wives. Robert, son of Dr. Zachariah, built a store on a crossroads next to the Huntsville Road which, beginning in 1836, also functioned as the community's first post office. The area quickly became known as Hagood's Crossroads.
