Show 911 – Main Street Atmore

The city of Atmore earned designation as a Main Street Alabama community in 2020. Add that to downtown investments and renovations undertaken by a group called the Pride of Atmore and you get a downtown that’s nearly unrecognizable compared three years ago. Learn more Atmore — a reinvigorated railroad town.

Red’s Little School House may be off the beaten path, but the food is sure to remind you of a meal at grandma’s house. And the staff treats you just as kindly as grandmama did, too!

Pull up a chair, and enjoy a visit to this institution in south Montgomery County.
