Mountains, the City of Oneonta
welcomes you. Be our guest and

Welcome to Oneonta.
Named after her sister city in Oneonta, New York, Oneonta presents a growing audience for new businesses, developers and investors alike. True to its beginnings, Oneonta continues to flourish as a hub for local businesses and serves as the county seat.
Minutes from downtown Birmingham, Oneonta sits on the edge of Alabama’s largest city while maintaining its cultural identity as a true southern town. Diverse, focused and ready, Oneonta is the perfect setting for a new place to call home.
City News & Updates.
The City of Oneonta is proud to be undergoing a renovation of our Parks & Recreational services. As part of that plan, we will update the Historic Oneonta Depot and the promenade surrounding it. We would like to invite you to be a permanent part of that vision by purchasing an engraved brick with your name, or business name prominently, displayed. Our parks, and particularly the Depot, are an important component of Oneonta. Be a part of one of the most iconic representations of our city, The Depot, with a brick displaying your gift to the revitalization of this beloved structure.
Starting in 1889, the Louisville and Nashville Railroad began railroad freight and passenger service to Oneonta. The L&N Railroad depot was located in downtown Oneonta behind the Garner Hotel. In 1975, the depot was moved from the downtown area to the present location and since has been used as a meeting site for various functions.
Two options are available. An engraved 4x8 inch brick with 3 lines of available text, or an 8x8 inch engraved brick with 6 lines of available text.
We are excited to begin this renovation and look forward to many more years of preservation and use!
