Community Profile


In spite of a rich historic background, Greene County is not a place that time forgot.  The economy is still   largely based on agriculture, cotton still grows, cattle still graze and  timber is still a vital resource, but now tourists are visiting, and catfish farming is one of the  several growing industries among the veneer mills and manufactures. 

Growth continues as Alabama Power's Greene County Steam Plant is slated for expansion, traffic increases  along the promising Tenn -Tom Waterway, and development follows the route of Interstates 20/59 through the heart of historic Greene County.  

The Crossroads of America Industrial Park is located on Interstate 20/59 exit 32 Boligee,   Alabama in the heart of the Automotive industry.  This park is complete with energy,     telecommunications, rail, water and sewer service.  Environmental and soil data is available.
