Office of the Mayor
Welcome to Wetumpka!
In 1776 William Bartram, the legendary naturalist, when visiting near Wetumpka proclaimed, ”This is perhaps one of the most eligible situations for a city in the world, a level plain between the conflux of two majestic rivers.” The strategic location (just minutes from the State Capitol), natural resources, and hospitable atmosphere continue to attract residents, commercial and industrial establishments, and tourist today.
Wetumpka, the County Seat of Elmore County, has played a significant role in the history of Alabama and is poised for a progressive future. The growing population is attracting additional commercial and business development. Additional recreational facilities are in the planning and development state as are new residential subdivisions.
As the Bibb Graves Bridge quickly identifies Wetumpka, the Coosa River flowing beneath offers limitless opportunities for recreation and tourist dollars. Additional attractions at Fort Toulouse/Jackson State Park, the eroded remains of a pre-historic meteorite crater, and the Poarch Band of Creek Indian reservation gaming facility increase the daily traffic flow.
Would Bartram be disappointed? Never — but he would enthusiastically promote the many advantages that make Wetumpka a great place to live, work, and play.
Jerry Willis, Mayor
