Autauga County is one of the fastest-growing counties in the state. The county seat, Prattville, is home to what was once the world’s largest cotton gin manufacturer. The factory complex is part of the historic district in this unique town, along with more than 150 other buildings. The Autauga County Heritage Association and the Heritage Center Museum are housed in a Greek Revival home that was built around 1830. The county’s gently rolling landscape, which includes the Alabama River, is host to several outdoor parks and recreational areas. Music legend Wilson Pickett was born in the county.
