Welcome To Lawrence County, Alabama!
Lawrence County is located in northwest Alabama. The Tennessee River’s Wheeler Lake forms the northern border of the county, while Bankhead National Forest occupies the southern fourth of the county. Lawrence County is bounded by Colbert and Franklin Counties to the west, Morgan and Cullman Counties to the east, and Winston County to the south. Lauderdale and Limestone Counties are across the Tennessee River to the north. The county encompasses approximately 693 square miles. The city of Moulton, the county seat, is just south of the geographic center of the county. The northern part of the county, along the banks of the Tennessee River, is relatively flat. As you go further south you ascend a plateau across the central part of the county, with the area in the Bankhead National Forest rising again into a mountainous area.
This beautiful county is full of surprising experiences and adventures, packed with rich culture and history, and is full of the most friendly and warm people you'll meet in the South. We believe Lawrence County is the best place in Alabama to visit, live, work and play!
