We are pleased to welcome you to the mountaintop town of Sand Rock, Alabama, situated in the Northwestern part of Cherokee County. Sand Rock has that “hometown America” atmosphere with all the character and friendliness you’d expect from a close-knit hospitable community.

The Sand Rock community has a rich history dating back to the early 1800s. It is a small town of about 500 residents located in northeast Alabama. Rich in hospitality, natural beauty, and strong family and faith traditions, Sand Rock values its rich rural heritage, strong school and community support, and strong work ethic. (link to Sand Rock history)

Sand Rock residents enjoy quiet country living, yet have easy access to the conveniences of big-city amenities and services. Located equidistant from Atlanta, Birmingham, and Chattanooga, Sand Rock enjoys its unique blend of rural and urban influences.

Our goal for this website is to bring you factual information about our local government, our location, our school, our faith, and some of the services our municipality offers its residents and visitors. Our website will constantly change and grow as Sand Rock’s town leaders increase the availability of information and services through online resources.

Most importantly, visit Sand Rock and meet its people who know that it is not only a fine place to visit, but also a fine place to live.

Thank you for visiting Sand Rock’s website. We invite you to visit here again – online or in person! You’ll find, like our residents, that Sand Rock is a great place to live, work, learn, and grow.
