Atmore is a city in Escambia County, Alabama, United States. The city has a culture similar to its neighboring metropolitan of Mobile, Alabama. Atmore is in the planning stages to increase its economic base with additions in its new Rivercane development along the I-65 corridor.

Atmore has completed requirements to be recognized as an Alabama Community of Excellence at the upcoming Alabama League of Municipalities Convention. City officials are also working with Alabama Historical Commission to have the downtown district listed on theNational Register of Historic Places.

On May 23, 2007, Atmore celebrated its centenary.

The federally recognized Poarch Band of Creek Indians is also headquartered in Atmore.

 

 

History

 

 

Atmore was first recorded as a stop on the Mobile and Great Northern Railroad. The town was named after Mr. C.P. Atmore, General Passenger Agent of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, who was a friend of Mr. Carney. Mr. Carney owned a sawmill in town and was a very prominent citizen. The town was originally going to be named Carney, but Mr. Carney had a brother who had already established a town and named it Carney nearby. The town then decided to let Mr. Carney name the town. He named it after his close friend Mr. Atmore, who never visited Atmore.

Local economy

 

 


For most of the 20th century, the Atmore area was primarily a farming, timber, and light industry community. Major commercial industries have been Masland Carpets, Alto, and a local lumber company. For many years, the Vanity Fairlingerie company operated a manufacturing sewing plant in Atmore, offering employment to local citizens and surrounding communities.

With federal recognition and the founding of gaming casinos, the Poarch Band of Creek Indians near I-65 has increased its relative economic contributions to the region. The tribe operates The Wind Creek Casino and Hotel, which provides for tourism and conferences. Wind Creek is one of few four diamond hotels in the state.
