Arkadelphia was settled in the 19th century, with a post office opening in 1854. The town's etymology is disputed. Some believe Arkadelphia was the name of the wife of the first postmaster John A. Donaldson. Some believe it is a combination of "Ark-", the name of an early settlement in nearby Winston County, and "-adelphia", a pseudo-Greek combination meaning "brother-place," likely taken from Philadelphia. There is no known connection to Arkadelphia, Arkansas, an incorporated city founded in 1809 and renamed Arkadelphia in 1839.
Railroad engineer J.E. Willoughby was born in Arkadelphia in 1871.
Arkadelphia is located on Alabama Highway 91.

1880 was the only year a population was officially reported for the unincorporated community: 195 persons. At the time, it was located in Blount County. It was the second largest community behind the then-county seat of Blountsville. Following a border adjustment between the two counties, it was shifted into Cullman County around 1900.
