About our City

Pell City is open for business. We are located on  Interstate 20 in the vital Atlanta – Birmingham corridor. We are within easy reach of all the major markets in the Southeast. We have an outstanding industrial park and our Economic Development Council is ready to assist you in making your business plan work here. Our job training programs assure that our workforce is second to none.

The quality of life here is about as good as it gets. Our climate is ideal. We are on the shores of beautiful Lake Logan Martin where lakefront living at reasonable prices is a reality. The quality of our health care system is evidenced by our new (December 2011) state of the art hospital, St Vincent’s St Clair. Our educational system is a leader in our state.The recent addition of  Jefferson  State  Community College (2005) provides wonderful educational opportunities for all our people (particularly in the health sciences where we are a leader in producing nurses).  In 2004 we established our city as a cultural center in our state with the opening of the Pell City Center for Education and the Performing Arts which is home to a 400 seat state of the art theater complete with orchestra pit.

Our Lakeside Park is home to our Civic Center with facilities for meetings large and small. Our thriving and growing tennis program is led by Sarah Stewart  recently named  Alabama’s Professional of the Year. All youth sports are available and professionally managed by our outstanding staff.  There are numerous classes offering opportuities for self improvement. Lakeside Park also has a beautiful walking trail,  outdoor pavilions, an outstanding playground, fishing and boat launching.
