In the early 1800s, people began settling in the area. It was originally known as Shelbyville, but after the Civil War, it changed its name to honor the war hero Major John Pelham. When Pelham was incorporated in 1964, just 654 people called the city home. However, population growth has been rapid in recent years. By the 2010 census, more than 21,300 people called Pelham home.

When to Visit Pelham, AL

Visit Pelham in the fall to enjoy pleasant temperatures and low humidity. Rain tends to fall through much of the year, but the fall months are typically much drier than other times of the year. Tourist numbers also tend to be down during this season, so hotel prices tend to drop. The city is busier in early October thanks to the Oak Mountain Big Fall Festival, so book your room early if you hope to join in the fun.

Spring also has comfortable temperatures, but the season is prone to thunderstorms and even the occasional tornado. These inclement conditions continue through the summer. The rain can dampen summer vacation plans, although it does help cool the city, which is hot and steamy when dry.

Winters are mild, especially compared to other parts of the nation, but the often relentless rain continues. Snow is rare in Pelham.

Make time to scale Shackleford Point. This 1,260-foot summit offers incredible views of the park below. Peavine Falls, a 65-foot tall waterfall, also provides a special photo opportunity. While its natural features are stunning, the man-made facilities are also worth checking out.
