Elba, class of 2013, designated 2015, elbaal.gov
The County seat of Coffee County in southeastern Alabama, Elba, which is just 38 miles from the Florida state line, has a population of just over 3,500 and is centrally situated in the Wiregrass Region alongside the confluence of Whitewater Creek and the Pea River. Its proximity to the nearby Gulf Coast beaches and major transportation routes makes Elba a perfect choice for businesses and individuals looking to relocate.
Incorporated in 1853, Elba was known as “The City of Flowing Wells” because at one point in time there were over 150 naturally flowing wells within the city limits. The historic Downtown Square has stood throughout Elba’s history and is considered by many to be a living museum. In addition, guided walking tours through historic landmarks, including the Coffee County Courthouse, James E. (Big Jim) Folsom Birthplace and the Old Coffee County Jail, are also popular. Hawkins-Williams Park features an Olympic-size swimming pool, ball fields and tennis courts. Additional parks throughout the city offer many other amenities and activities. The city also maintains a boat ramp to the Pea River and fishing opportunities at the Coffee County Lake. While Elba is home to several industrial enterprises as well as numerous local professional and retail establishments, agriculture is a driving force in the area economy.
