This tiny community, located just two miles north of Decatur, is older than the State of Alabama. Formed in 1818, the entire 12 blocks of the oak-lined village is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. President Andrew Johnson worked here while serving as a tailor’s apprentice. Prominent structures include the 1820s Stage Coach Inn and Tavern and the 1840 town post office which remains in use today. The town was the site of a Walt Disney movie (Tom & Huck) about the adventures of Tom Sawyer.
