He discovered the fall line of Autauga Creek and used the waterpower to build the base of his industrial empire. He founded the town that bears his name in 1839. Pratt's foundation was a cotton gin manufacturing plant that still dominates the landscape of downtown today. Continental Eagle Corp., which traces its roots back to Pratt, manufactures gins and other equipment used in cotton production. Along with the gin, Pratt built textile mills, a lumber mills and door and sash factory in the city. He also donated land to be used for schools and churches. Known as Alabama's first industrialist, Pratt expanded his influence to the fledgling iron producing efforts in the area that would become Birmingham. There he built foundries and furnaces. Pratt City, just outside of Birmingham, is named in his honor. Prattville's historic downtown area reflects Pratt's New England roots. In most older Southern cities the courthouse square is the centerpiece of downtown. Prattville was built around the sprawling industrial complexes designed by Pratt, and the required mill pond that impounded the water used to power his factories and mills. Sadly, Prattville lost a large part of its early history on the night of Sept. 10 and 11, 2002, when the Gurney Building, a closed textile mill, burned. The block long building, comprising three stories and a full basement was designed by Pratt. It was a twin of the gin shop, which stands directly across Prattville's history built on industrialist's dream the Autauga Creek Dam. You would have to wonder if Pratt would recognize his city now. Long gone are the days of Prattville being the sleepy, little farm town where everyone knew everyone else. For the past three decades Prattville and Autauga County have seen tremendous growth. The growth rate has perennially placed Autauga County in the Top 5 list of the fastest-growing counties in the state. Prattville has a population of 35,000 and is seeing a boom in retail growth. The city has added 1.3 million square feet of store space in the past three years, with another 260,000 square feet of development now under construction. The growth is taking place in the eastern sector of the city. Where cotton fields and pastures once stretched from horizon to horizon, there's a new crop growing. Big box giants like Target, Bass Pro Shops, Belk and J.C. Penny just to name a few, now call the city home. But even with the expansion out east, city leaders haven't forgotten downtown. A recently completed $1.2 million revitalization project in the historic business district brought in period lighting, new sidewalks and streetscape improvements. An ongoing project is the construction of a creekwalk, following the northern bank of Autauga Creek. The walk begins in the shadows of the gin shop, and plans are to take it down the creek to Pratt Park. So if Pratt came back today, he would see a bigger city, but he still would be able to recognize the cornerstone he laid those many years ago. montgomeryadvertiser.com Saturday, May 16, 2009 5 Serving Prattville Since 1981 365-2298 Corner of Highway 14 & 82 Prattville, Alabama Experience relationship-based, full service banking from local professionals you know and trust 0000327337 from Service, Strength, Solutions...

In the Montgomery area, you're likely to find a big plate of hot, flaky biscuits on the table for breakfast, lunch and supper. Another must for most meals is a tall glass of iced tea that's so sweet that it almost takes your breath away. As you are settling in, you may enjoy using a few recipes with local flavor. Here are a couple to get you started: Light and Fluffy Angel Biscuits ter 1 package yeast 2 tablespoons warm wa- 1 / 4 cup oil 5 cups plain flour 2 cups buttermilk 1 teaspoon baking soda 3 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon sugar Dissolve yeast in warm water. Combine with remain- ing ingredients and mix well. To bake, roll dough to about 1-inch thickness and cut with biscuit cutter, or drop dough onto baking sheet sprayed lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Refrigerate dough, and use as needed. Recipe from "The Country Kitchen" Sweet Tea 3 quarts water (give or take) 2 cups sugar 4 quart-size tea bags Bring water to a rolling boil. Add sugar, and stir to dissolve. Add 4 tea bags, and stir. Let sit 20 minutes or so. Pour tea-sugar mixture into 1 gallon jug or container. Fill the rest with cool water. Note: If you'd like, you can add lemon juice, slightly frozen pink lemonade concentrate, peach juice or other flavors to your tea. Note: Recipe modified from one found at www.sweettea.com Sweet tea is a Southern favorite. Earn your MASTER OF SCIENCE IN NURSING Large Enough to Reach Opportunity Opportunity...

The tri-county area also boasts some of the best private schools. Tallassee City Schools in Elmore County was one of the first schools involved in the Alabama Reading Initiative and serves as a training site for TEAM-Math. In comparison, Elmore County Public Schools has 15 schools, with every school accredited by the state and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Among the school system's latest achievements is Wetumpka High School teacher Virginia Vilardi being named as one of four candidates for Alabama Teacher of the Year. The Autauga County school system operates from the mission statement "committed to excellence." That statement is carried throughout the school system's 13 schools. The system serves a host of communities that include Billingsley, Pine Level, Marbury, Autaugaville and Prattville.

Here are some of them: Ralph Abernathy: As the leader of Montgomery's First Baptist Church, the Rev. Ralph Abernathy helped the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. organize the famous 1955 bus boycott. He later became president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Tallulah Bankhead: She was born in Huntsville, but after her mother died just weeks after giving birth to her, the famous stage and screen actress spent much of her youth in Montgomery. Her successes included debut roles in the plays "Dark Victory," "The Little Foxes," and "The Skin of Our Teeth" and the lead in the Alfred Hitchcock film "Lifeboat." Nat King Cole: Cole, who had almost 30 top-40 hits, including "Unforgettable," "Ramblin' Rose," "Looking Back" and "Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer," was born on March 17, 1919, in Montgomery. He moved to Chicago with his family when he was a child. Cole was the first African American to be the host of a prime-time TV variety show. Jefferson Davis: Born in Elkton, Ky., in 1808, Davis was the president of the Confederacy. A star in front of the Capitol marks where he took the oath of office, and the First White House of the Confederacy, where he lived during the early months of the Civil War, is at 644 Washington Ave. and open to tours. Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald: She met F. Scott Fitzgerald while he was stationed in Montgomery. In 1917, he left Princeton to join the Army. The money from his first novel, "This Side of Paradise," allowed him enough financial security to marry her. Fitzgerald, the author of such works as "The Great Gatsby" and "Tender is the Night," and his wife, a dancer/ writer/painter, became the most celebrated couple of "the Jazz Age." The house at 919 Felder Ave., where the couple briefly lived in the 1930s, has become The F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum. Martin Luther King Jr.: In 1954, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. became the minister of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, now Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church. After successfully leading the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955 and 1956, he became America's greatest civil rights leader. He organized the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and his leadership in protests in Birmingham and other Southern cities and the March on Washington helped earn him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. He was assassinated in 1968. J. Kelly Fitzpatrick: This influential Alabama artist and Wetumpka native lived from 1888 to 1953. Besides influencing artists from the 1930s to the present with his in 1999. Daniel Pratt: Born in New Hampshire in 1799, Pratt often is cited as Alabama's first great industrialist. He created one of the country's great cotton gins, as well as one of the state's first planned developments, Prattville, when he moved to Autauga County in 1833. He built a railroad, a bank, an iron foundry, sawmills, grist mills and other enterprises before his death in 1873. Bart Starr: Born Jan. 9, 1934, in Montgomery, the Sidney Lanier High School graduate went on to become one of the greatest professional quarterbacks of all time. He led the Green Bay Packers to five NFL titles and to wins in Super Bowls I and II. He was the regular season MVP in 1966 and the MVP of both Super Bowls in which he played. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977. Willie Mae "Big Mama" Thornton: The famous blues singer was born in Montgomery on Dec. 11, 1926. Thornton's hits included "Hound Dog," which sold more than 2 million copies before Elvis Presley recorded it, and "Ball and Chain," which was a huge hit for her before Janis Joplin recorded it. George C. Wallace: Alabama's four-time governor and former presidential candidate gained initial fame as a segregationist, blocking black students from entering the University of Alabama, but later renounced these views and won support from many black Alabamians. Shot by a would-be assassin while he was campaigning for president in 1972, Wallace was paralyzed below the waist. Hank Williams: Although born near Georgiana, the man who many consider country music's greatest artist began his career in Montgomery and thought of the city as his home. His hits include many of country music's greatest songs, including "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Long Gone Lonesome Blues," "Cold, Cold Heart," "Take These Chains from My Heart," "I Can't Help It (If I'm Still in Love With You)," "Jambalaya," "Honky Tonk Blues" and "Hey, Good Lookin'." After he died on New Year's Day 1953, more than 20,000 people came to his funeral. His grave is in the Oakwood Cemetery Annex, and there is a Hank Williams Museum at 118 Commerce St. The Wright Brothers: Orville and Wilbur Wright, the inventors of the first successful airplane, had a flying school in Montgomery in 1910 on the current site of Maxwell Air Force Base. During the four months the brothers were in Montgomery, they started the first civilian flight school in the country, had the first night flight in the world, and made decisions that would change dramatically the design of their aircraft by adding a rear stabilizer, a much more powerful engine and landing wheels instead of a sled. A statue in their honor has been erected on the base. Wetumpka native J. Kelly Fitzpatrick depicted Southern life and landscapes in his artwork. works of Southern life and landscapes, he founded the Museum Art School and the Dixie Art Colony and was instrumental in the creation of the Alabama Art League and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. Rosa L. Parks: When she refused to give her seat to a white passenger on Dec. 1, 1955, Parks helped spark not only the Montgomery Bus Boycott, but also the civil rights movement. She was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, Congress's highest honor, 0000327620 montgomeryadvertiser.com Saturday, May 16, 2009 27 RIVER REGION Great Places, THE NATURE of Luxury APARTMENT LIVING WITH Splash! 334.271.4663 0000327559 334.270.1818 334.288.0022 334.277.3670 Park Place Apartments Willow Ridge Apartments Prattville, Al Prattville's PREMIER Community! facilities Spacious, Comfortable, and Affordable East-Side Living. 6121 Eden East Drive Montgomery, Alabama 36117 Now Leasing Phase II 334.290.0333 0000327930 Ask about our special firstname.lastname@example.org 1310 Hwy. 14 - East Prattville 1.5 Miles west of I-65 334-491-HOME (4663) 334.279.6556 The Ashton - Renovation to be complete Summer of 09'- 0000327380 An Eastside lifestyle that is beyond your at prices that are still within your Vaughn Meadows Apartment Homes 0000327074 Bigger, Better, Best!
