TALLASSEE

Tallassee is a small town with big energy that’s got much to give its residents and visitors. Only 20 minutes from Montgomery, this city may be best known for a rich history dating back to Native American times and carefree lake living (with the Tallapoosa River running through it and Lake Martin practically in its backyard). But Tallassee is also an industrial hub, with over 21 industries located in the city, including Neptune Technologies, GKN Aerospace and several Tier-1 Hyundai suppliers. “We are a small, but growing city,” Jeanna W. Kervin with the Tallassee Chamber of Commerce said. “Our public city school system continually out-ranks all neighboring systems.”

She also pointed to Mother Nature as a large part of the community’s appeal. “Our natural resources are bountiful,” she
said. “Hunting, fishing and all types of outdoor activities are easily available.”

And it’s all about to be easier to access. “We are in the beginning stages of developing our Riverfront and Entertainment district,” Kervin said. “This area will include an amphitheater, a Creek Indian heritage museum, walking paths plus a hotel and conference center.”

With its hometown feel, Tallassee is a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle, and for those who are considering a place to live, work, raise a family, retire, or even start a new business, Tallassee should be on your list.
