Mignon is a census-designated place (CDP) in Talladega County, Alabama, United States. At the 2010 census the population was 1,284.[1]

History[edit]

Mignon initially became an incorporated town (according to the 1920 U.S. Census) around 1915,[2] but either disincorporated or lost its charter in the 1930s and did not show on the 1940 U.S. Census. Because (as of 1950) it still was a sizeable community of 3,000 residents, it was listed on the 1950 through 1970 census rolls as an unincorporated community. Beginning in 1980, it received the new status of census-designated place (CDP).
