Clanton, a growing city with a rich history, is the seat of Chilton County Alabama, the state's largest producer of peaches.
Besides peaches, some of our most remarkable natural resources are a beautiful landscape and a friendly small-town atmosphere.
Located in the center of Alabama on Interstate 65, halfway between the cities of Birmingham and Montgomery, Clanton is a location
ripe for business and industrial development. It is Clanton's proximity to the new automobile plants in the state that has made our city
the site of two automotive parts manufacturers since 1999.
Our city's parks and recreation facilities are beautiful, convenient and offer something for everyone year-round. Visitors to our
city enjoy an abundant selection of hotels, restaurants, and attractions, and because of our proximity to the larger cities, day trips
to an even larger selection of entertainment sources are convenient.
I hope you will find the information on our web site to be informative and complete. If you have any questions about our city, please
feel free to contact us.
Billy Joe Driver,
Mayor of Clanton
