Limestone County is in the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in northern Alabama. Filled with friendly people and progressive communities, the county stretches from the northern bank of the mighty Tennessee River to the southern boundary of the State of Tennessee.
What turns a city into a place you want to call home? What gives it its edge over its rivals? When every city begins to look a bit alike, what lets some cities either big or small creates a special allure, develop as a powerful brand, or just become known as the ideal place to do business?
We invite you to visit Limestone County Alabama - located in the Tennessee Valley with the Tennessee River running along the southern end of the county and the Elk River defining the southwest boundary.
So what makes a city fail or work, is if it can deliver Quality of Life!
Quality of Life is a reflection of both the hard and the softer elements of city and rural living. And it's not just about wealth. This is about shared experiences - a community that's inclusive, but works for all.
So it's kayaking in the shadow of our beautiful Elk River. It's about Mooresville’s quiet historic village, nestled between larger cities continuing to inspire others with their Early 19th century architecture.
Though we have many challenges facing our communities; how do we maintain the city's heart, create homes for all, and add to our city’s density without buckling services; all while maintaining life and vitality on our streets?
Parts of the solutions are simple in that many of the things that create quality of life are inexpensive, such as places to assemble while enjoying a beautiful water fountain, or biking the many miles of charted trails.
However, our city also needs to hold on to what makes her unique. That's why people seek out the distinctive festivals like our Fiddlers Convention and Storytelling and enjoy the Alabama Veterans Museum and visiting Athens State University.
We are blessed with talented musicians performing at our monthly concert series in the park and artists teaching and delighting us in our High Cotton Arts. We also provide oral historic history during our Cemetery Strolls and Historic Walks.
