Hayneville is southwest of Montgomery.
You won't get many answers in the Huntsville (north Alabama) forum.
Keeper, would you please move this thread to the general Alabama forum?

Might try Haleyville in these parts. The home of Jake Hess (nearby actually) and the first 911 telephone call in 1968.

Default Hayneville. Al.

I haven't been there in many Years, but it's unlikely things have improved in the interim. Hayneville is a small Black Belt town. Farming gave it's birth. Given that Farming has been virtually nonexistent in the area for 50 Years there's little economic activity there and no real reason for the Town's existence. Things are unlikely to improve in the future. There just isn't much there and never was.

d.
If you're referring to the term "Black Belt", it comes from the good black earth that runs through that part of the state. It doesn't refer to the color of the people who live there.

Default "Small white town"?????

I grew up in the next county and went to school nearby. Hayneville (please don't say Hay-nee-ville) is the Lowndes County seat. Many political offices are/have been held by blacks. Quiet place most of the time.

Default what can anyone tell me about Hayneville, Alabama

I prefaced my comments re Hayneville by saying that I have not been there in a number of Years, thus I may not have a current perspective. The situation is what it is regardless of the color of the predominate residency. The same comments that I made are equally applicable to a number of small towns in south central Tennessee where the residents are mostly White.
