Would you like to live in a small town – where you know the bank teller, the grocery store clerk, the mailman and the hardware store owner? If that’s what you’re looking for, Dadeville is the place! And if you just need medium sized towns try Alexander City or Auburn & Opelika are just 30 miles away. If you need the big city, there are a few larger areas close by: Montgomery – 60 miles, Birmingham – 85 miles, Atlanta -120 miles. Small town charm, historic square, slower pace, little or no traffic, friendly folks ... who could ask for anything more?
Where is the heart of Lake Martin? Dadeville! May folks come to the lake for weekends all during the year. Lake Martin is a man-made lake with a hydro-electric dam completed in 1929 and operated by Alabama Power. The lake has over 40,000 acres of clear, deep, clean water and more than 880 miles of shoreline. Perhaps 35% of the shoreline has been developed – lots of wilderness with hills, rocks, trees, bald eagles, fox, coyote, deer, turkey, beaver, muskrats – wildlife; and all kinds of property to choose from – tiny old cabins, new mansions, and everything in between.
