Warm Greetings from Dallas County

We welcome you to Dallas County's website. I know you will find useful information that can save you a wait in line. This website is a work in progress, so if you do not find the information or if you have suggestions that will help us improve this site please let us know.
Dallas County is a wonderful place to call home. The county is filled with history from the Civil War to Civil Rights. This history draws visitors from every state in the U.S. and many foreign countries. Dallas County and its rich blackbelt soil produced record amounts of cotton in early years. Dallas County has a tremendous amount of wood product and agricultural opportunities as well as aircraft and automotive related industries. Through the efforts of Team Selma, The Dallas County Commission, The City of Selma, and other combined efforts we continously seek new industrial partners. If we can be of assistance to you please contact us.
