Our Story

Ohatchee is located in western Calhoun County. The town center lies just north of the confluence of Tallaseehatchee Creek with Ohatchee Creek, a tributary of the Coosa River. A northwest extension of the town limits reaches to the shores of the Coosa River along Neely Henry Lake.

Andrew Jackson used the area around present-day Ohatchee to prepare for the Battle of Talladega. Between 1863 and 1864, Alfred A. Janney built a furnace, now named Janney Furnace, to produce pig iron for the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. The site is now a part of the Calhoun County Park System and features a Civil War memorial alongside a Civil War and Native American museum.


The Ohatchee Municipal Complex is located along Alabama Highway 77. The Municipal Complex houses the Water Department, the Police Department, the Mayor's office, the Ohatchee Senior Center, the Ohatchee Public Library, and the Ohatchee Municipal Court offices.
Working together with the people of Ohatchee, our staff strives to seek sustainable growth that protects our natural and historic resources, while preserving our values, qualities, and culture.
