City of Thomasville

Thomasville…………A true gem in the middle of rural Southwest Alabama. A small town with a big heart and a people who work hard to help make the dreams of our region come true. A “can do” attitude and a competitive spirit flows through the veins of every citizen of Thomasville; “Southwest Alabama’s
Success Story”.

Thomasville is in the center of a vast regional trade area and draws 80,000 plus shoppers to its merchants from portions of 6 Alabama counties. That trade area has steadily grown to a point that the center of Thomasville on US highway 43 has the highest daily traffic count off interstate between
Tuscaloosa and Mobile at nearly 20,000 vehicles per day.

Education has been a firm foundation from which Thomasville’s growth can easily be traced. Our excellent K-12 city school system and the presence of Alabama Southern Community College’s award winning campus in Thomasville assists every citizen young and old in achieving lifelong learning. Thomasville City Schools and Alabama Southern have partnered in providing Dual Enrollment to high school juniors and seniors to enable them to jump start their college education while in high school so they may be better equipped to face the world that awaits them at home and abroad.

Great talent has always been prevalent in Thomasville through singing, dancing, acting, painting, and just plain old story telling. Well, now all our talents can now be prominently cast and displayed in Thomasville’s new 30,000 sq. ft. Civic Center. Complete with a beautiful 500 seat theatre that will accommodate any New York Theatre production; an exquisite gallery to display art and antiques alike; along with meeting rooms complete with wireless internet access and projection capabilities………no small town can match the versatility and range of uses of this great facility.

A new 60 acre medical park is planned in south Thomasville and will feature a new $30 million hospital along with other related services to bring healthcare to a new level in the Thomasville region. Put that together with a city owned nursing home; quality healthcare and rural Alabama are compatible in
Thomasville now and in the future.

Recreation is available at every turn in the Thomasville Region. Great fishing on the Tombigbee and Alabama Rivers, a hunting paradise in any direction and a city recreation department that offers everything from baseball to soccer; basketball to football; there is always something to do in this rural
village! Porch sittin’ is still allowed as well; you can tell all your friends and neighbors your stories of the week and listen to a few too!

Thomasville has a little to offer everyone if you just take time to look around. A little bit of suburbia and a little bit of culture; but most of all a good dose of old time small town the way it should be! As one of our famous home folks, writer and story teller Kathryn Tucker Windham says, “We aren’t New York City and don’t want to be…….we are Thomasville and all the great things that go with being who we are.”

Come and see us!!!
