Overview
Long before the creation of its famous lake in 1939, Guntersville had a reputation for ferries, farms, and factories. Its streets bustled with customers patronizing shops, cafés, and movie theaters. Ranging from the Nedofik Surgical Sofa Company and the Basket Factory to the Saratoga Victory Mills, Guntersville’s diverse industries helped the community thrive. Today, businesses like Wayne Farms Feedmill and Kappler, Inc., continue to reflect the city’s industrial nature. This rich manufacturing history coupled with lake tourism meant Guntersville drew visits from an array of actors, singers, authors, scientists, and politicians. Many came frequently, and a few chose to stay. A mesh of new and old, industry and lake, Guntersville continues to charm.
