Welcome to the website for the Lawrence County Alabama Chamber of Commerce. Our county, located in the northwest corner of the state, features tremendous natural resources, extensive recreation opportunities, a strong school system and, most of all, wonderful, resilient, hospitable people.
From the beautiful banks of the Tennessee river in the north to the breathtaking vistas in the hills of the Bankhead National Forest in the south, our county offers something to anyone who loves the outdoors. We have pristine areas for fishing and hunting, trails for hiking, great parks and recreational facilities, and two award-winning area golf courses. Golfers can enjoy Valley Landing in Courtland and Deer Run in Moulton, both beautiful 18-hole courses with driving ranges, putting greens and full-service pro shops. We are also just a short drive from the nationally-renowned Robert Trent Jones golf trail. For those looking for a secluded spot for vacations or corporate retreats, Joe Wheeler State Park and Doublehead Resort near Town Creek are great choices. Through the year, our county enjoys fun events like the annual Strawberry Festival and the Multi-Cultural Indian event held at the Oakville Indian Mounds Education Center. We also host an annual old-fashioned county fair.
For history buffs, our county features two can't-miss attractions - the Jesse Owens Museum, honoring the Lawrence County native and Olympian, and the General Joe Wheeler Home and Museum. Also, all our communities offer a variety of historical homes and sites.
