Welcome to Jacksonville, Alabama, a small town with Southern charm, a historical past and promising future.  Jacksonville, nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, is located half-way between Birmingham, Alabama, and Atlanta, Georgia, providing easy access to major urban areas.  Historic churches, restored homes, and the unique “public square” help maintain the charm and grace of peaceful, small-town life.  The residents of Jacksonville are family-oriented and friendly, complementing the warmth and inviting atmosphere surrounding our city.  I invite you to come home to Jacksonville and enjoy an exceptional array of educational, recreational and cultural opportunities.  Welcome home!

Mayor Johnny L. Smith
