Montgomery, the capital of Alabama and the county seat of Montgomery County, is located in south central Alabama next to the Alabama River. The city became the capital city in 1846, representing a shift in power within the state due to the growth of cotton. Currently, the city boasts some 226,000 citizens and is the third largest city in the state.
Montgomery is a diverse city that has much to offer. As the capital, Montgomery houses many government buildings and agencies. It also has a strong military presence with Maxwell Air Force Base. Several higher learning institutions call Montgomery home, including Alabama State University, Troy University (Montgomery campus), Auburn University at Montgomery, Faulkner University, and Huntingdon College. The Alabama Shakespeare Festival and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art round out the city in the cultural arena.
