Valley, Alabama was incorporated in 1980 combining the four textile mill villages of Fairfax, Langdale, Riverview, and Shawmut. We are located on Interstate 85 halfway between Montgomery, Alabama and Atlanta, Georgia. Valley is only 75 miles southwest of Atlanta-Hartsfield International Airport (Google Map) and 85 miles northeast of Montgomery Regional Airport-Dannelly Field (Google Map) Airport in Montgomery. Our population is 9,200. The city lies on the banks of the Chattahoochee River - the state border between Alabama and Georgia. Valley is an "Alabama Community of Excellence", one of only eight in the state.
We are proud of our ‘southern, textile-mill heritage’ and are committed to preserving the historic structures that still exist in the City of Valley. The Fairfax, Langdale, Riverview and Shawmut historic districts are all on the National Register of Historic Districts. In addition to the rich history of the area, Valley is a Tree City, USA town. And, did I mention, we have a River!
