Montezuma was incorporated in 1854 after the community of Traveler's Rest relocated to be near the site of the new railroad. Downtown Montezuma is on the National Register of Historic Places with architecture dating back to the 1850s. Situated on the east bank of the Flint River, downtown Montezuma restaurants offer visitors a variety of dining options, and an old-time grocery store specializes in country meats and hoop cheese.

Check out gift and antique shops, and visit the Macon County Historical Museum in the restored Victorian railroad depot. Montezuma's Visitor Center in the Carnegie Library Building offers heritage tour guide books. Stroll along the shady paths of the Montezuma Bluff Wildlife Management Area to see 50 million-year-old fossilized limestone encrusted with ancient sea shells from the Tallahatta Formation marine ecosystem.
