What Bert Has To Say About Gadsden Metro Area

Gadsden is historically one of the state’s largest industrial centers, producing steel, rubber, fabricated metal and electronic equipment in an almost early 20th century company-town environment. The steel and rubber factories, led by Goodyear and Republic Steel, mostly went away in the 1980’s, leaving a fairly gritty and impoverished industrial landscape. The city worked hard through the 1990’s to reverse the tide with redevelopment investments with some success, but today Gadsden is still a mixed bag with unemployment, crime and education issues.
