“ACE provided us with a platform to consolidate our vision as a community,” second-term Montevallo Mayor Hollie Cost said. “They brought us together to develop a strategic plan, and then we had direction.”
A dragon grins from a tree in Orr Park, a Revolutionary soldier strolls across a field, and purple and gold ribbons flutter from giant oaks in February. These sites are part of what make Montevallo unique and full of possibilities whether you live here year-round or visit for a day.
This city with a population of about 6,000 is located 30 miles south of Birmingham. With a unique cultural charm and village-type atmosphere, Montevallo has it all: the state’s only public liberal arts university, a colonial village where history comes to life, top-notch schools, historic homes, welcoming neighborhoods, a handsome public library with an art gallery and a state-of-the-art theatre, and a Main Street that features shops and restaurants unique to the area. So whether you fancy sipping white-chocolate mochas on a wrap-around porch while enjoying a jazz concert, or traipsing through a lush park beside a meandering creek, Montevallo is home to all this and more.
Explore culture and the arts in Montevallo, participate in history at The American Village, shop the stores and galleries on Main Street, or enjoy the natural beauty of the town with a stroll through its neighborhoods and park. You’re invited to experience the life of Montevallo.
