Ozark is a city in and the county seat of Dale County, Alabama. According to the official US Census conducted in 2000 the population of the city was over 15,000 and it is a principal city of the Enterprise-Ozark Micropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Dale County. It is also a part of the much larger Dothan-Enterprise-Ozark Combined Statistical Area. The Ozark Micropolitan Statistical Area has a population of over 50,000 residents and is also the home of the Fort Rucker U.S. Army Center for Excellence.
It was settled by the Creek Indians for around 5,000 years, though the first known European settler to settle in the area was John Merrick, who was a veteran of the American Revolution. It began life as Merricks, though the name was changed to woodshop, then finally to Ozark in the mid-to-late 19th century. Though population growth was initially very strong, dating back to the 1880 U.S. Census, it began to decline starting in the 1970’s, though by 2000 the city was once again growing in population. Manufacturing is making its way to Ozark as well, with several new plants opening up in and around the town.
During the summer months temperatures in the city typically hit around 93 degrees during the day, with overnight lows often dropping down to around 62 degrees. During the winter months, however, temperatures typically hit around 57 degrees during the day, with lows typically dropping down to around 36 degrees overnight. The weather makes auto transport services to and from Ozark a bit easier for auto shippers, though its rural makeup does not. It may be easier to ship to a larger city nearby, perhaps Dothan or Enterprise.
