“Mayor Townson said the city has bounced back after much of its downtown was destroyed by an April 27, 2011 twister. He said Cullman did such a good job of rebuilding that it was selected as the No. 1 city in Alabama to recover from a natural disaster. After the tornado, it was like waking up a sleeping giant,” he said.

Downtown, there are now restaurants, cafes, boutiques and coffee shops. It almost feels like a pedestrian-planned community. Cullman’s vitality and business-friendly atmosphere make the city an ideal spot to live and work.

Today, Cullman is frequently named as one of the nation’s top micropolitan areas for economic development by publications such as Site Selection and Southern Business & Development magazines.

This film from May 28, 2013 reveals the spirit of Cullman.
