The City of Oneonta is located 35 miles northeast of Birmingham. Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Murphree’s Valley in eastern Blount County. Oneonta became known as a mining community settled for its rich seam of Iron Ore discovered by John Hanby in 1817.
Incorporated on February 18, 1891, Oneonta soon became the county seat to Blount County in 1897, as before Alabama became a state. Once a small town made up of a train depot, post office, telegraph office, three stores, and only twelve residents, this small town has flourished keeping its charm and community centered heritage. Oneonta has developed to over a total of sixteen square miles and serves an increasing population of over 6,567 people according to the 2010 census.
Situated conveniently for a small commute to the larger cities of Birmingham, Gadsden and Huntsville, we welcome growth and opportunity. Oneonta is prepared for industry and prepared to meet the needs of pleasant lifestyles which enrich the livelihood of our business community.
The picturesque valleys and farmlands yield generous indulgences during harvest season, all which can be purchased within our local farmer’s market or along street side.
The beautiful scenic mountain backdrops offer a terrific color spectacular. Oneonta is minutes away from two premiere scenic parks and sports climbing venues, Historic Horse Pens 40 and Palisades Park.
