Downtown Montgomery Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The riverside Downtown neighborhood of Montgomery, Alabama is located north and west of the center of town. Situated in the 36104 zip code, and steeped in history, Downtown offers Montgomery apartment dwellers access to city services, museums, night life, and riverfront recreation.
Downtown is just across the expressway (I-85) from Alabama State University, and sits in close proximity to both Oak Park and Bruce Park. The 7,000-seat Patterson Field baseball park and the Capital Parkway Shopping Center are a short drive away, as well.
The mostly commercial Downtown neighborhood is home to the Montgomery City Hall, Alabama State Capital, Montgomery County-City Public Library, and the Alabama Department of Archives and History. Downtown attractions include the Riverfront Park, Hank Williams Museum, the United States Air Force Heritage Museum, the Montgomery Performing Arts Center, and Old Alabama Town, a six-block area of restored structures dating from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Riverfront Park, alongside the Alabama River, offers an amphitheater, a playground, and picnic tables. It is also the home of historic Union Station, which serves as Montgomery’s Visitor Center. Downtown area residents can visit Old Alabama Town, to get a glimpse of the past via live demonstrations and a walking tour.
Montgomery was the scene of many significant American Civil Rights events during the 1950s and 1960s, and as a result, Downtown is also home to the Civil Rights Memorial, Rosa Parks Museum, the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church (where Dr. Martin Luther King was pastor from 1954-1960), and the Dexter Parsonage Museum.
