The Power of Collaboration in East Alabama
Sunday, May 5, 2024
8:00 AM - 5:15 PM

Anniston, Heflin, and Oxford are three Main Street communities located within 20 minutes of each other. Each historic district is physically, financially, and culturally distinct, with one powerful common feature: their commitment to work together as a region to attract visitors to East Alabama. On this tour, learn how each city has invested in unique civic infrastructure projects that have increased foot traffic and spurred significant private investment, as well as civic pride. In Heflin, discover how a rural city has become known internationally by hikers and is home to a nationally known adaptive reuse project; experience a community that has created a unique retail and entertainment oasis in a sea of big box chains in Oxford; and in Anniston, visit a district that has embraced its place in history and began to rebuild itself as the region’s most diverse and inclusive Main Street.
