The city of Prattville, Alabama, sits just 13 miles northwest of the state capital of Montgomery. A growing community of approximately 34,000, Prattville features a unique blend of progress and historic preservation.
Prattville grew around the influences and accomplishments of Daniel Pratt who is widely considered “Alabama’s First Industrialist.” Pratt established his town, Prattville, along Autauga Creek in 1835, quickly establishing a lucrative cotton gin manufacturing business, as well as a sawmill, gristmill, cotton factory and a facility that produced sashes, doors and blinds. In 1866, Prattville was chosen as the county seat of Autauga County. Today, the city of Prattville continues to prosper, offering plenty of opportunities for residents, businesses and visitors.
So many reasons contribute to Prattville and Autauga County’s high quality of life. Friendly people, safe neighborhoods and affordable homes continue to attract prospective homeowners who take pleasure in the area’s multitude of modern amenities. The community offers excellent outlets for recreation, historical discovery, entertainment, shopping, dining and more. Prattville Baptist Hospital and many other high-quality medical providers supply high- quality healthcare, while Autauga County Schools and a collection of private schools, colleges and universities present top-notch education to the area’s student base. And as part of the Montgomery metro area, business remains strong.
Put all of this together and there’s no wonder Prattville, “The Preferred Community,” is recognized as one of the fastest-growing areas in Alabama. Prattville’s residents remain excited by the community’s unlimited potential and continued opportunities for growth. Combine Prattville’s rich history, its quality of life and focus on the future, and it all adds up to success.
