There's a Lot To Like About Winston County!

Winston County is located in the northwest portion of Alabama in the southeastern foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.  Terrain varies from low rolling hills covered with evergreens to spectacular gorges, picturesque rock bluffs, and hardwood forests.

With its hometown feel and southern charm, Winston County is a cozy rural area wrapped in the conveniences of a big city.  Warm summers and mild winters nestled within the Bankhead National Forest with Smith Lake as a beautiful, luxurious backdrop make it a comfortable place to live, visit or do business.
