Prattville, Alabama is a suburb of Montgomery and has been dubbed “The Preferred Community” by its residents.

From the history buffs to the outdoors enthusiasts, there is something for everyone in Prattville!
1. Historical Sites and Museums
Daniel Pratt Historic District
The Daniel Pratt Historic District brings life to the stories told about Daniel Pratt and his dream for this community.
Autauga County Heritage Center
“History buffs and those interested in genealogical research will enjoy a visit to this c. 1840 Greek-revival house within whose walls Prattville and Autauga history was made. Numerous interesting artifacts from the Pratt Family, as well as other items depicting the history of families who settled in Autauga County, are housed in the Prattaugan Museum.”- City of Prattville
Buena Vista Mansion
“Built in 1822 by William Montgomery, Buena Vista is a historic Federal style plantation house. It is one of the early examples of elegant plantation homes constructed in central Alabama. In fact many of the materials used to build the home were made in Birmingham, England, such as the plaster cornice moldings. Today, Buena Vista is operated as a house museum by the Autauga County Heritage Association, and is also available to rent for weddings and other events. It was added to National Register of Historic Places in 1974.” -The Clio
2. Outdoor Activities
Take a walk along the banks of the beautiful Autauga Creek and enjoy the peace and relaxation that the creek can bring to you.
“The splash pad project was funded by winning the Coca-Cola Live Positively "America is Your Park" $100,000 grant during the summer of 2012. Pratt Park also won the title of "America's Favorite Park.” The splash pad is open seasonally, usually late March through the end of September.”- City of Prattville
“Enjoy canoeing/kayaking down Autauga Creek, a beautiful natural resource that winds through the City of Prattville and Autauga County. The official access point is behind Pratt Pond and the exit point is beyond County Road 4, behind the Autauga Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility. The trail is just under 4 miles long and provides exercise, experience with nature, and a lot of family fun. If canoeing or kayaking isn't your thing, consider floating down in an inner tube to just enjoy the weather and the scenery. You won't be disappointed!”- City of Prattville
