Alabama State Capitol

Alabama is located in the southeastern United States. The state has a strong agricultural history. Large farms and antebellum plantation houses are prevalent, as are points of interest relating to the American Civil War, including historic homes, battlefields, and memorials.

Birmingham is Alabama’s largest metropolitan area. Major industries for the area include coal mining, railroad freight transportation, and trucking. Several college campuses are located in the city, including three of the state’s five law schools. Birmingham is in close proximity to the Appalachian Mountains and the Cahaba River.

Montgomery is the state capital of Alabama. The city was the home of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King and was at the center of the civil rights movement. Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base and Fort Rucker are major military installations and training grounds for soldiers from all over the country. Several public and private colleges and universities are located in Montgomery also.

Alabama real estate includes plenty of historic homes and neighborhoods, as well as golf communities, beachfront homes, and suburban developments. Lake and mountain houses are available too and are great choices for vacation or rental properties.
