Alabama Port has never reported separately as an unincorporated community on the U.S. Census. However, in 1880, the 19th precinct of Mobile County bore its name, and had 417 residents.[3] The name of the precinct was changed in 1890[4] to Cedar Point, then Heron Bayou and Dauphin Island in 1900[5], simply Heron Bayou for 1910-20[6] and "Herron Bay" for 1930-50.[7] It was consolidated under the Bayou La Batre census division in 1960.[8]
