Millbrook, class of 2005, designated 2007, cityofmillbrook.org
Located in Elmore and Autauga counties, 10 miles north of Montgomery, Millbrook enjoys a rich heritage dating back to the 1700s with such prominent leaders as Bolling Hall, William Wyatt Bibb and John Archer Elmore. Between World Wars I and II, the areas of Millbrook, Coosada and Robinson Springs, later to be known as the Tri-Communities, began to grow in population. The in-migration, facilitated in part by the construction of Interstate 65 in the mid-1970s, led to Millbrook’s incorporation in 1977.
With a population of just over 17,000, Millbrook has evolved around its rural features and natural resources. Nature, wildlife and the numerous waterways have helped shaped Millbrook into the city it is today. Outdoor recreational activities can be enjoyed at any of the City’s six municipal parks and public golf course, and at nearby Jackson Lake Island and Lakes Jordan and Martin. Millbrook is home to the Alabama Nature Center, a 350-acre outdoor conservation education facility that consists of boardwalks, hiking trails, a hands-on Discovery Hall and many other attractions. The Grandview YMCA, Millbrook’s local Y, is another gem with lakes, trails, swimming pools and a state-of-the-art Wellness Center. The City is currently developing 17 Springs, a large multi-use sports complex, that when completed in 2024 will serve as a catalyst project for the Highway 14 gateway into west Elmore County.
