Supporting Montevallo Business Owners
Montevallo has several restaurants that I like to call “destination eats.” Main Street Tavern, Slice Pizza and Zapopan are the first ones that come to mind. These restaurants attract patrons from other cities to our town.
Discovering the Beauty in Nature
Montevallo has many parks to enjoy. Orr Park, Stephens Park, Dailey Park, Shoal Creek Park, Owls Cove and Bicentennial Park are the jewels of the city. Orr Park, Stephens Park and Shoal Creek are our largest parks. These three parks attract visitors from all across the South. You can look at wood carvings, catch a baseball or softball game or walk on 11 miles of hiking trails.
Montevallo Arts Fest and the Tinglewood Festival
Montevallo hosts several events every year. Our two largest events are the Montevallo Arts Fest and Tinglewood Festival. Each of these events brings about 6,000 people to our town.
The Nix family land is where I go to clear my mind. I can remember as a kid walking through the pasture and woods, feeding the cows, hunting squirrels and camping out. After my grandmother passed away, some of the grandchildren and cousins purchased the land to build their dream homes–myself included.
The Hidden Gem of Shelby County
I consider Montevallo the hidden gem of Shelby County because it is home to American Village, the National Cemetery and the University of Montevallo. Montevallo is rich in history, and I feel proud to be the city’s 16th elected mayor and to have served on the city council for the last 12 years.
