Dorsey Trailer remains key to Elba economy after more than century

Elba is a town with a rich history built by locals who have lived their whole life in the city and businesses that help the community thrive.  A key part of the economy is Dorsey Trailer, a company with roots in the community that date back to the turn of the 20th Century.

Behind the old jail and its rusted-out cells, new life sprouts every year in Elba. The community's Giving Garden is a plot of land where volunteers can help grow cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other produce that is then donated to the Elba Community Food Bank.

Inside of the First Baptist Church in Elba, just around lunchtime on Tuesday, you can find the intersection of community service and community business. The members vary in age, background, profession, but they all make up the Rotary Club in Elba.

Thanks for summer of learning in Elba

It is hard to put into words what my time here in Elba this summer means to me. I have made friendships that will last a lifetime and memories that will never be forgotten. I’m so lucky to have gotten the opportunity to call this city my home for the past ten weeks, and I will miss it dearly.

Pea River kayak trip provides peaceful fun

Throughout this summer, I enjoyed many opportunities to experience some of the fun aspects of living in Elba. The clubs, organizations, food and the events held in the city have been great. They bring people of the community together. Of course, the Pea River is one of the town’s main attractions.
