The City of Fort Payne
Welcome to and thanks for visiting the Official Web Site of the City of
Fort Payne, Alabama.
As mayor, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Fort Payne, Alabama...My Town, Too!
Every season here is special. With every turn you will see positive growth.
Lookout Mountain is the backdrop to our lives. Don’t miss all there is to do...hiking, snow skiing, horseback riding, exploring, camping, golfing, as well as plays and festivals. Nearby is the Little River Canyon National Preserve and DeSoto State Park.
Fort Payne is a pro-business and industry community, and we have several national firms with facilities here. We work to combine incentives to locate in the city, and we have a well-rounded work force available. Our transportation system is excellent with interstate and rail. Our modern airport will easily handle corporate aircraft.
Come and enjoy all we have to offer. The quality of life is great!
Mayor Larry Chesser
