As the “birthplace of industry” in Alabama, Prattville’s rich history spans the life and accomplishments of its founder Daniel Pratt, the great industrialist. Prattville features the Daniel Pratt Historic District, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, where some of the sites date back to the Civil War era. Today, Prattville is the seat of government in Autauga County, founded in 1818, thus making it “a county older than the state.”
Also called the “Fountain City” (named for the abundance of artesian wells that once flowed through our town) Prattville boasts a wide variety of natural and recreational attractions, including golfing, canoeing, hiking, fishing and other means of entertainment. Prattville’s cultural and retail attractions, numerous antique and specialty stores, and excellent dining establishments are sure to please almost any taste.
