We are home to one of the highest number of historic architectual designed homes in Alabama. A city that onced boasted over 30,000 residents that is now coming back alive and re-growing through tourism, plays, hunting, and historic scenery We are still small and quaint having only about 3,000 residents with new people arriving daily to want to slow down - put a rocker on the front porch - turn off the ole TV and see how it feels to get to know your neighbors and relax after a long day at work!. Our area is historic homes or buildings calling out for renovators for some homes and others just need someone to appreciate the novation! In the last two years people have moved here from Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Arizona, Texas, Virginia and Belize (etc).. Our lives are slower here but we are less than an hour from major shopping and numerous universities. We have a growing venue in Tourism - which expands with each new transplantee coming here. Look at our beautiful town on our chamber site usacoc.com or our tourism site unionspringsalabama.com
One of our newest "transplants" came here from Virginia, bought one of our restored Painted Lady Victorian homes. He then opened an Antique store which he named "Somewhere in Time Antiques" . That pretty much sums up our attitude of a slower life - had my many before the turn of the century. When its comes to the pleasures of the world -- Come on by for some Southern Hospitality and some "sweet tea" -- its really about knowing your neighbor. Get up in the mornings and walk our streets among the historic downtown buildings -- join us -- share your vision of growth for a town with so much history!
