First Documented Town In Alabama (Moorseville, Alabama)


Welcome to Moorseville, Alabama, the first documented town in the state of Alabama. This is another town that should be on everyones to see list if in the area.

Located just East of Decatur,Alabama, this is a stop right off the freeway heading into Huntsville, Alabama. The town is set in its own little community that you will find 19th century fencing surrounding the neighborhood.

In the middle of town is where the main history is, that talk about the old tavern (unfortunatly isnt in operations anymore) to the oldest still operational post office in the state, to there first church that hasnt been in operation for many years.

Once you visit the old buildings, take a stroll in the neighborhood to see all of the 19th century house that are still standing today. These houses range from large 19th century victorian mansions to little cottages that takes you think you just landed in a fairytale.

While taking your stoll, you will find the still operational church (Moorseville Church of Christ) that was established in 1854. Its truly amazing on the history on this part of the country.

If checking this town out for commercial photography, you will be required to purchase a permit to take photos.

I hope you enjoyed this blog and we will see you soon!

We decided to take a gamble at it by selling everything, buying a truck and trailer, and figuring out how we are going to manage having a family of 5 with a cat and dog fit in a trailer full time while we travel the country.
