Welcome to Monroeville/Monroe County! We call it God’s Country. When you have had an opportunity to look around, you may call it Heaven! If you are tired of traffic, lines and waits, and if you want to see the real and authentic U.S.A., you will find it here on our historic downtown courthouse square, or in the thousands of wooded acres that abound in the county, or in the quiet of a planted field. Monroe County welcomes its visitors and converts many to residents. Our ultimate goal is for you to find a home here.
We have much to offer. In this global age, where, with the flick of a cell phone, you can do business anywhere in the world, with anyone, you may consider Monroe County. The cost of doing business is reasonable, real estate is still a good value and the quality of life is superior. Monroeville is a mecca for healthcare providers, public schools are competitive and recreational opportunities abound. Monroe County Airport is a crown jewel, with a 6,100-foot runway that can land just about any size corporate jet. Monroe County also has a diverse range of industrial properties ready for occupancy. If you want to build or expand your business, this is the place.
While you are here, please visit our shops! There are several unique items available for sale created by the talented people who live and work in Monroe County. You may wish to tour Monroe County’s arts & antiques establishments. Volunteers assist with staffing the museum and enacting the play, To Kill A Mockingbird in its 22nd season. If you cannot get play tickets due to the play’s traditional sold-out status, please take advantage of touring our museum and other attractions!
In this special year of 2011, we continue to celebrate the publication of Miss Nelle Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, To Kill A Mockingbird. Whatever your reason for being here, please consider that Miss Nelle is special, not only to us, but to a host of fans all over the world. While we respect her desire for privacy, we reserve the option to quietly salute her message of basic goodness in this world and equality for all. We also celebrate the release of the U. S. Postal Service’s Legends of Hollywood Forever Stamp featuring Gregory Peck in his Oscar-winning role as Atticus Finch in the film, To Kill A Mockingbird.
Monroeville is known for Mockingbird and more…enjoy your stay, and, at all times, know that you are welcome!
