Cullman is a city in and the county seat of Cullman County, Alabama. According to the US Census Bureau’s most recent estimates, the city’s population was just 16,000, which is only a 2,000 resident increase from the 2000 US Census. It lies just fifty miles north of Birmingham, Alabama and just 55 miles south of Huntsville. Cullman sits along Interstate 65, along with several other major cities in Alabama, making it easily accessible for car shippers should you need auto transportation services to or from the area.
It was founded in 1873 and was founded by Colonel John Cullman, a German refugee who had fled Prussia at the time and came to the United States to spread his own beliefs. He named the town after himself and it quickly grew into a small town. Population growth was steady until the 1950’s, when both Birmingham and Huntsville began attracting more residents. For many years, Cullman was a college town; home to the Saint Bernard College until the late 1970’s, when the college was closed for good, Cullman gained a reputation as such. Today, however, the college has been converted into the St. Bernard Preparatory School.
During the summer months the city’s temperatures hit around 90 degrees during the day, with overnight lows often dropping to around 50 degrees overnight. During the winter, however, temperatures typically hit around 55 degrees during the day, with overnight lows hitting around 42 degrees overnight. Snow is rather uncommon, which helps when it comes to transporting a vehicle to or from the area during the winter months.
