Paper Shredding Services Dothan, AL

Dothan, Alabama, is quite the melting pot of a city, spanning across three separate counties: Dale, Henry, and Houston. Dothan is Alabama’s eighth-largest city and serves as the county seat for Houston county.

Located in the most southeast corner of the state, Dothan is only twenty miles west of Georgia and sixteen miles north of Florida. Due to its unique location, Dothan has become the main transportation and commercial hub for a significant part of southern Alabama, western Georgia, and the Florida Panhandle.

As a result of its location and commercial success, roughly twenty-five percent of the United States peanut crop is processed in Dothan, Alabama. This distinction has earned Dothan the title of: “The Peanut Capital of the World." Dothan is also the host of the annual National Peanut Festival at the Peanut Festival Fairgrounds.

Despite its roots as a traditional agricultural society, Dothan’s art and music scene has blossomed over the last century with the foundation of the Dothan Opera House (1915) and the creation of the Southeast Alabama Community Theater (1974).

Dothan can also brag about their selection for the construction of the prestigious “Highland Oaks Golf Course” as an addition to the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. A trail of eleven championship-caliber golf courses personally designed by Robert Trent, spanning the entire state of Alabama.

Whether it’s the bustling agricultural economy, the beautiful sounds of the music scene, or just a really good round of golf, no matter what brings you to Dothan, Gilmore has got you covered. The Gilmore family has been protecting Dothan businesses and families for over forty years! When it comes to record storage, document destruction, information security, and moving services, we are Dothan's go-to provider.
