GREENE COUNTY, AL -

Greene County is a county often called "The Gateway to The Blackbelt".  With a population of 8,876 resident, Greene County is the least populated county in the state of Alabama and offers a rural and peaceful atmosphere for those looking for a slower pace of living.

Just southwest of Tuscaloosa County, Greene County is rich in land. The county has a total area of 659.93 square miles and roughly 97 % is land which is flanked by two flowing rivers creating various terrains described as a hunter's paradise.

From highlighting the county's beautiful natural resources to a look at how locals are using past relics such as historic antebellum homes to attract more tourism dollars to Greene County,  officials  believe that the future of the county economically is bright.
