Booth is an unincorporated community in Autauga County, Alabama, United States. It was named after the family of Charles Booth who moved to Autauga Alabama in the 1830s. He sent six of his sons to fight for the Confederacy. One of his sons, Jesse H Booth, became Probate judge for Autauga County from 1874 to 1880.[2] Booth lies along U.S. Route 82 northwest of the city of Prattville, the county seat of Autauga County.[3] Although it is unincorporated, it has a post office that was established in 1899.[4]

Booth is part of the Montgomery Metropolitan Statistical Area.
