Collinsville is located in the northeast corner of Alabama in both DeKalb and Cherokee County.  It has a mayor/council form of government and a population of 2,000.  According to the 2010 census, nearly half of Collinsville residents are Hispanic, and in 2013 the Collinsville High School all-Hispanic soccer team won the school's first state championship.  The Collinsville Public Library is located downtown and offers a number of programs for residents of all ages, including the annual Quilt Walk, which attracts visitors from several states.  The Collinsville Historical Association (CHA) promotes the preservation and understanding of local history. CHA has restored the Town Clock that once sat atop the 1946 Cricket Theatre, and they are currently working to save and preserve the historic theatre itself.
