Rainsville: a growing city with a winning location

Home of the Plainview Bears, and the Cornerstone Christian Academy Eagles, Rainsville is a city of 5,000 residents resting atop the large plateau known as Sand Mountain in scenic northeast Alabama. The uncrowded, yet growing city is ideally located near larger Southern cities with easy access to major transportation routes. Outdoor recreation opportunities such as fishing, boating, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, bird watching and outdoor photography abound in this region filled with rivers, lakes, mountains, caverns and canyons.
