The city of Clanton recently unveiled a monument in Clanton Corner Park in downtown that marks the exact center of the state of Alabama. After new coordinates and measurements were recently made, Clanton was named the new direct center of the state. The Birmingham Association of Realtors made a $7,500 donation to the city to assist in the purchase of the monument.

Members of the Birmingham Association of Realtors, Clanton Mayor Jeff Mims, the Clanton City Council and other city officials gathered around the new monument on July 11 for a photo.
