Things to Do in Albertville, AL

Dive Into History

Settlers began migrating to the area in the mid-1840s up until the Civil War escalated. Northern Alabama saw a number of clashes between Confederate and Union soldiers—Albertville included. Settling started again when word spread about the region’s forests and rich soil. In 1891, Albertville was officially incorporated as a city of Alabama. In addition to “the Heart of Sand Mountain,” the city is also nicknamed the “Fire Hydrant Capital of the World,” thanks to the Mueller Company’s presence. You can find a fire hydrant in front of Albertville Chamber of Commerce in commemoration of Mueller’s one millionth fire hydrant. Learn about Albertville and the surrounding area’s history at the Albertville Museum.
