That’s what everyone asks when they find out we moved here. Well, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then I have several!
HISTORY: Alabama is dripping with it. Although it is largely “infamous” it is still ours and we should not forget it lest we repeat… We have come so far from then.
The home above was built by Mr. Bibb, a plantation owner, in 1836. It is still owned and occupied by family decendents. Mr. Bibb was the first president of the Alabama State Senate, and the second Governor of Alabama. During the Civil War the home was occupied by Federal Officers, including General Sherman.
It has clean air.
We went here…
Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville is the home of the rocket science that powered our Moon and Space Explorations. It still is!
It has seasons…
It is so wonderful to live in a rural setting and to have seasons to mark the year’s passing. Just a month ago this big brown patch was a cotton field! Big crops here are cotton, corn, beans and hay.
A view of the countryside…
And finally, our home which sits on approximately an acre.
This is our back yard in spring.
And a closeup of fall from the front room window.
We are not city style people at heart, and therefore, this rural Alabama setting suits us just fine.
SWEET [new to us] HOME ALABAMA!
