Dadeville Alabama has been the county seat of Tallapoosa County since 1838. Dadeville was named for Major Francis Langhorne Dade who died in the Seminole War in 1838. The county courthouse is located in the center of town surrounded by historic buildings which house local businesses. Locals consider Dadeville as the "Heart of Lake Martin." Lake Martin is a man-made lake with a hydro-electric dam completed in 1929 and operated by Alabama Power. The lake has over 40,000 acres of clear, deep, clean water and more than 700 miles of shoreline.
Both Dadeville and Lake Martin have much to offer the casual visitor or the potential resident looking for the perfect home. Dadeville is centrally located just an hour north east of the capital city of Alabama, Montgomery. Also it is a simple one and one-half hour drive north west to Birmingham or two hours north east to Atlanta. Dadeville is only 40 minutes on Hwy 280 from Auburn University and 20 minutes down US Hwy 280 from Alexander City.
Dadeville boasts the William T. Thweatt Industrial Park which contains over 500 acres of building site and the Lake Martin Community Hospital where the "personal touch makes the difference."
