Constructed in 1992, Clanton's Big Peach is 120 feet tall and holds 500,000 gallons of water! It was built to celebrate the importance of peaches to the area's economy.

Fred the Town Dog
Fred the Town Dog was the beloved mascot of Rockford, a small town east of Clanton. Fred was a stray that first wandered into the area in 1993 and was nursed back to health by the community who adopted him. Almost 10 years later, Fred died on December 23, 2002 in a Birmingham animal hospital from a mysterious animal bite. A full-sized grave marker, donated by a Montgomery businessman in May 2003, was added to Fred's gravesite behind the Old Rock Jail.
