Paying Heed to Small Towns

USA Today writes that 2010 will be a big year for Alabama’s small towns. Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, set in fictional Maycomb, turns 50. Talladega, home to the Superspeedway, turns 175. And America’s oldest ballpark, B’ham’s Rickwood Field, is turning 100. The Great Alabama Homecoming,, will feature these landmarks and more in a tourism showcase of over 200 small towns and community events. Our own little Jacksonville, population 8,404, has a homecoming weekend planned for Sept. 24-26. Let us know if you’re coming. 🙂
