What Bert Has To Say About Montgomery Metro Area

Montgomery is a steamy old Southern town with a strong legacy- first as the Confederate capital and later as a center of civil rights struggles in the mid–20th century. While some cities might shy away from this legacy, Montgomery honors it with considerable pride and dignity. It remains the state capital today, but offers only modest amenities for a capital its size. Economy and employment have been relatively strong, in keeping with the region.
