I was born and raised in Cullman County. The people here are like family and I find myself close to many. Most of the community will give you the shirt of your back if you needed it and that is what I have always loved about this town. The schools are quite competitive with one another but in the end, we all come together with good sportsmanship and congratulations in hand.

Cullman is a lovely quaint small but growing town located in North Alabama; in the heart of the Bible Belt. Laid back country folks with excellent schools and low crime rate. Great place to raise kids and call home!
This is where I grew up. Friendly place. Bit of a meth problem. Very conservative area but unlike what the media claims, these people will help anyone regardless of political or moral views.
