Fultondale is a city in Jefferson County, Alabama with a population, as of the 2010 census, of just over 8,000. Officially incorporated in 1947, the city received its name by joining the names of two nearby towns: Glendale and Fulton Springs.
One of the most notable buildings in Fultondale is the Pine Bowl bowling alley, a mainstay that’s been around for numerous decades. Before experiencing relatively significant growth throughout the last ten years, Fultondale was basically a ghost town. The city’s smoke-free ordinance, passed nearly five years ago, is considered to be the most stringent of its kind in the state of Alabama.
