Living History, Preserved to This Day

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.
