Old Prattvillage was established in 1982. Old Prattvillage occupies the first block of First Street in Downtown Prattville, Alabama, a part of the land purchased by Daniel Pratt from Joseph May in December, 1835.
In May, 1982, a civic need and a passion for preservation led to the formation of Old Prattvillage. The 1840 Mims Hotel was in danger of being moved out of the Daniel Pratt Historic District or destroyed. A group of houses on First Street, though in a dilapidated state of repair, were in a prime location and the property included a vacant lot which would accommodate the beautiful old hotel. Historian Lenore Kirkpatrick and Developer Al Bock saw the need and combined their interests and talents to realize a dream.
Working with the newly formed Prattville Associates, the Autauga County Heritage Association launched a "Save the Mims" campaign and the Mims was saved.
Old Prattvillage is comprised of:
All houses are leased for office and business.
