The first structure in what is Atmore was a small shed built along the railroad at which supplies were left for William Larkin Williams who had a logging operation ten miles down in Florida. In 1866 the site was first called Williams Station, just a supply stop along the railroad.
Atmore the Beautiful
Atmore is fortunate to have two wilderness areas: Little River State Forest, and Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve, within 20 minutes of Atmore. Each offer amenities such as improved and primitive campsites, swimming, camping, fishing and hiking.
The Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce has proven itself to be an effective volunteer, non-profit organization. We are committed to making our community a more attractive place in which to work and do business. Chamber membership is comprised of a cross section of businesses, industries, organizations and individuals interested in quality of life issues and the promotion of the Atmore area's business and economic development. As business people or residents we all share a stake in our community. Membership in the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce is a great way to nurture and safeguard your investment.
We invite and challenge you to join us in developing Atmore. At the Chamber, we don't just talk about the future . . . we help shape it and we need your help! The activities of the Chamber are limited only by the support of the community. Let's combine our talents and make Atmore the best it can be.
