Uchee, also known as Spains Stand, is an unincorporated community in Russell County, Alabama, United States. Uchee is named after the nearby Uchee Creek, which in turn is named for the Yuchi tribe. The word "yuchi" probably means "at a distance" in the Yuchi language, with yu meaning "at a distance" and chi meaning "sitting down". The Yuchi lived in the area around present day Russell County, Alabama and Fort Benning, Georgia, before being removed to the Indian Territory. The Uchee Methodist Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A post office was operated in Uchee from 1835 to 1907.
