What are the major towns or cities around Lake Martin, Alabama? I get this question from time to time when I am talking to buyers on the phone about Lake Martin real estate.
I have written here before that I usually get my best and most effective blog post ideas from my buyers. When one of my buyers asked me this question today, I realized I have never written about it here.
I am biased because I grew up in Alexander City, and sell on the lake now, but I think it would be a wonderful community for anyone. The three major towns closest to Lake Martin are:
1. Alexander City (aka Alex City) (1 hour 10 min from Birmingham, 45 min from Auburn, 1 hour from Montgomery)
2. Dadeville (1 hour 30 min from Birmingham, 30 min from Auburn, 1 hour from Montgomery)
3. Eclectic (1 hour 30 min from Birmingham, 45 min from Auburn, 25 minutes from Montgomery)
If you are a researcher and would like to know more beyond the Wikipedia articles I linked above, here are some great resources for the area:
Lake Magazine and Lake Martin Living are lifestyle magazines, Alex City Outlook is a paper, the Dadeville Record is a paper, here’s a link to their viewer: http://boone.newspaperdirect.com/epaper/viewer.aspx
