Screamer is an unincorporated community in southeastern Alabama. The place has a noisy history. A local historian says the name could have two origins.

One is that it comes from the fact that 19th century Native Americans used to heckle white train travelers who passed by a reservation.

The “screaming” could also be the sounds made by local bears, panthers, and wildcats.
