Cars for Sale in Montgomery, Alabama
"Capital Cool" is a proud southern city. As the capital of Alabama, Montgomery has had a long and rich history, dating back to the early 1800s. Montgomery was incorporated in 1819, then became the capital of Alabama in 1846. It was named after Major General Richard Montgomery, who was a distinguished colonial hero in the Revolutionary War. This long and rich history has earned Montgomery the title of Best Historic City by USA Today, in addition to being named an All-America City in 2014 and being "A Top City for Job Growth" according to ziprecruiter.com.
The climate in Montgomery tends to stay reasonably warm. Average highs during the summer will consistently reach 90 degrees or higher, while average lows in the winter rarely drop below freezing. The presence of thunderstorms, especially during the summer months, provides more than four feet of precipitation to the city annually over a total of just over 100 precipitation days. In spite of this, Montgomery still experiences an average of 2,600 sunshine hours each month.
Though this trend may be on the verge of changing, Montgomery has almost never seen a population decrease. The city has seen steady growth since 1840, maxing out at a population of 205,764 according to the 2010 census. Montgomery's economy in the 1800s revolved largely around cotton production, but that has changed, especially in recent years. Now, healthcare, business, government, and manufacturing all contribute substantially to Montgomery's economy, which in turn accounts for almost 9% of Alabama's Gross Metropolitan Product. The largest employee in the city is still decisively the Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base with 12,280 employees.
Though Montgomery doesn't field a professional sports team, it does still have a prominent sports scene. The Tampa Bay Rays affiliate, the Montgomery Biscuits, compete in the Class AA Southern League, while the Alabama State University Hornets are an NCAA D1 school in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
