About Atmore

Atmore began in the 1860s as a small town and now has grown into the largest city in Escambia County. Just 50 miles north of Mobile and Pensacola, Atmore is perfectly positioned to be an attractive area for businesses while still retaining its warm and friendly charm.

Named one of the Top 50 Safest Cities in Alabama in 2017, Atmore is home to passionate citizens and visionary leadership that is dedicated to revitalizing the city. This redevelopment has attracted new companies, brought in the next generation of workers, and kept our current citizens happy.

From discovering the shops on Main Street to marveling at the beauty of the Little River State Forest and Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve, Atmore holds a wealth of entertainment for residents and visitors alike. Other amenities of the area include the Atmore Municipal Airport, a state-of-the-art Outpatient Clinic, and several city pools.

The City of Atmore is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for everyone by attracting a skilled workforce, local and regional businesses, and higher-paying jobs. Learn more about our revitalization and the team leading it by visiting our Mayor and City Council page.
