While the excitement of urban life is close by, the peace and tranquility of rural life is found right outside your door. The call of the bob-white, the questioning of "who...who" by the owl, the plaintiff calls of the whip-poor-will, or the raucous chatter of the mocking bird floats across the hills and meadows of Brookwood.  Deer are seen feeding across the street from the Town Hall and eagles are spotted soaring over the Black Warrior River. The pace may seem slow, but don’t be deceived. You will be pleasantly surprised when you discover the vitality and vision of the people in this quiet little village, Brookwood, Alabama.

The rapidly growing Town of Brookwood is located in eastern Tuscaloosa County along Alabama State Highway 216 and Interstate 59-20. Located between metropolitan Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, it offers the better of two worlds...the hustle and bustle of large cities and the quiet rural setting of a small town.
Brookwood is nestled in the tree-covered foothills of the Appalachian Range. The countryside varies from flat to gently rolling hills and is near the Black Warrior River that  winds its way to the Gulf of Mexico.
