Talladega is proud to be a 2022 Main Street Alabama Designated Community recipient. Talladega: Restoring a sense of pride.

Located in the northeast central part of Alabama, approximately 50 miles east of Birmingham, the city of Talladega was incorporated in 1835, just two years after the creation of Talladega County. The Creek village Talatigi was located near the site before white settlement. As settlers began to move into the area, the name gradually evolved into Talladega. The city has always been the county seat of Talladega County. It is home to one of the nation’s most comprehensive educational programs for the deaf and blind, to Alabama’s oldest private historically black liberal arts college, and to the Talladega Superspeedway. The city has a city manager – council form of government, with a five-member elected city council. The current population – 2020 Census 16,000
