Hueytown, founded in the 1870’s and incorporated in 1960, is a mid-size city of nearly 17,000 as stated in the 2010 census.
Hueytown is an easy twenty minute drive southwest from downtown Birmingham, Alabama as well as 45 minutes from Tuscaloosa. Interstate travel is made easy with I65/59 and I-459. The 115, S exit off I -59 delivers you to the Allison Bonnett Memorial Drive, the gateway to Hueytown.
Recent annexations to our city have resulted in over 14 square miles of residential and commercial properties, both suburban and rural. New businesses as well as new subdivisions are rapidly expanding the boundaries of the city.
Hueytown is proud of the mark that it is making on the world with many of its citizens achieving national renown. Race driver Bobby Allison is regarded as a NASCAR legend. Davey and Clifford Allison, as well as Neil Bonnet, have passed away but are well remembered as part of the “Alabama Gang” that continues to draw visitors to our city. Senator Richard Shelby is a proud graduate of Hueytown High School as well as State School Superintendent Dr. Joe Morton. Many more Hueytown High graduates have found opportunities for service throughout the United States.
Indeed, Hueytown is a city of “Pride, Patriotism and Progress”. Learn more about our city by visiting the areas of this site.
