I've lived in Eclectic a majority of my life, and have loved every minute of it! You don't get the loving, family environment that Eclectic has, from just anywhere. No often do tragedies happen around here, but if and when they do, it effects the community as a whole, not just the family the tragedy happened too, but the whole town. Most people around Eclectic will give you the shirt off their back, no one looks at race or gender, we're all family! This town is small, and doesn't have many job opportunities, but the tri-counties around here do. The school system is accommodating to all student, and it's completely fit for ones with special needs.

I have very much pride in little Eclectic, Alabama! It is a very small town, but it has a lot to offer its residents. It is close to Lake Martin, which is quite the tourist attraction, and there are many new stores and restaurants coming to town to bring some excitement to town. I love Eclectic and it will always be my hometown!!
I grew up in Eclectic, Alabama. I love Eclectic because it is a small town with kind and loving people. One thing I would like to change Eclectic by having a place where kids can go and hang out.
