Here in Monroeville, hospitality is a part of our Southern culture. Whether you arrive alone, with a tour group or just visiting with family and friends, unforgettable warmth, kindness and generosity await you all year long. Your visit to our city will be even more enjoyable if you stop by our Chamber of Commerce and Main Street Office for brochures about the key attractions and the sites of all prominent historical and literary markers.
On behalf of the city of Monroeville, I am delighted to welcome you to the “Literary Capital of Alabama,” the hometown of legendary greats: Harper Lee, Truman Capote, Mark Childress, Cynthia Tucker and other budding writers and authors like Lawrence Gulley, tasting the water of conscious expression while leaving their indelible footprints on the pages of time.
Please keep apprised of all the Monroeville events on the Chamber of Commerce’s website, savoring Southern hospitality and charm at its best. At its heart Monroeville is a vibrant mix of people, anxious to combine their strengths and skills for the common good.
We are counting on you touring the town to take in sites of the Old Monroe County Courthouse Museum, the memorable wall murals around Downtown Square, monument honoring Atticus Finch, Lee’s unforgettable protagonist. Be sure to visit the inviting shops along the downtown square and ones adjacent to this historic site. Come and experience the splendor of an endless seasonal escape in a safe town where diversity is welcome, and the spirit is free.
As the mayor of the town, I can assure you that if you decide to visit or put your roots down here that you couldn’t have selected a better city for you and your family to enjoy or reach your greatest potential. Monroeville is a nurturing environment for dreams and ideas no matter how small or great. From our police department to our diverse organizations and city council, we welcome you all year long.
Charles E. Andrews
Mayor, City of Monroeville
