Moody history:

Moody was incorporated in March of 1962. The move to incorporate was spearheaded by Clyde Shirley, who served on the first City Council.A. E. Moore was Moody's first Mayor.

The City of Moody got its name from Epps Moody, a pioneer who movedhis family to the area from North Carolina in the 1820's to homestead asection of land granted to him during the administration of President JamesMonroe. A store, a blacksmith shop, and a gristmill were some of thebusinesses in opeation by the mid 1800's. The first school was built in 1879. Thefirst church , Rock Springs Baptist, was organized in 1882. In 1886 theMethodist Church was organized.

In the early days the road that passed through Moody and ran from Ashville to Montevallo was called the "Montevallo Road." The roadserved as a stagecoach route, and along the way inns and hotels sprang up to serve travelers. At present, because of its connection with Interstate 20 and strategic location near the Birmingham Metro area, Moody has become the fastest developing business district in the state. Through planned developmentand good leadership it continues to retain its pristine, picturesque beautywhich first attracted settlers in the early l800's.
