Chilton County produces more than 80 percent of Alabama’s peach crop. To honor the famous product, its county seat, Clanton, boasts a peach-shaped water tower. The town also holds an annual peach festival on the last weekend in June. From 1902 to 1939 the county was home to Alabama’s only home for Confederate veterans; today the historic site operates as Confederate Memorial Park. The importance of railroads to the area is reflected in the crossroads community Maplesville. Several buildings in its Railroad Historic District are listed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage.
