Put the word “Google” in the Google search bar, and you might just pull up Stevenson, Alabama.

Google is breaking ground tomorrow in Stevenson for its newest data center in the U.S.

It’s been a long time coming.

Back in 2015, Google announced plans it would build a data center in Jackson County.

The $600 million center will have more than a hundred employees working to keep Google Search, Gmail, YouTube and other Google apps up and running.
