Ardmore is located literally on the border of Northern Alabama and Southern Tennessee. It also is contained within 4 counties, Giles and Lincoln counties in Tennessee and Limestone and Madison counties in Alabama.
The original plan was to have a direct route between Nashville, Tennessee, and Deactur, Alabama, and to pass through what used to be the town of Austin. As construction grew and more people made their homes in this small community, the town was renamed by the railroad as Ardmore in 1914.
Although Ardmore remains a small town community, the town's imprint on history is not small. Ardmore is home to the Saturn IB Rocket, at the Alabama Welcome Center, just south of the Tennessee border. The Saturn IB (alternatively known as the Uprated Saturn I) was an uprated version of the Saturn I rocket, which replaced its S-IV second stage with the much more powerful S-IVB. It was used for early testing of the Apollo spacecraft while the larger Saturn V, needed to send the Apollo to the Moon, was still being developed. The Saturn IB was also used in the first manned CSM Earth orbital mission.
Ardmore weather can range from low 20's in the winter to upper 90's in the summer. Although snow is rare in Ardmore, the people love when it does make an occasional appearance as the countryside is absolutely beautiful when coated in a blanket of white. Rain is also infrequent, following a very similar pattern to other inland, southeastern areas of the States.
Ardmore is host to several annual community events, including the Ardmore Car Show, the Rennaisance Faire, the Crepe Myrtle Festival, and the Ardmore Police Reserves Rodeo. For a more thorough list of opportunities or for information on submitting your own event to appear on our site, please visit our Ardmore Events page.
