Mooresville, Alabama, post office.
These are the original mailboxes, and are still in use today and some have been used by the same families for several generations.
The town post office, which I'd shown earlier this spring, but I got inside this time, we were in town during business hours!
I can tell you this: it's tiny (and adorable), the inside of the post office is so tiny, you can hardly take pictures in there!
The postmistress was a friendly and informative gal, who really appreciates her job in the oldest functioning post office around. We bought some postcards of old line drawings of the post office and other historical buildings in the town.
After visiting and signing the guest registry, we strolled through the town's streets we'd missed walking earlier this year.
Won't you come along for a gander at some more of the beautiful old homes?
I appreciate that the folks that live in this tiny town care enough to keep maintaining the buildings and keeping them so beautiful for us to look at.
This is "Stagecoach Inn and Tavern", dating back before 1825. This building was a necessity when Mooresville was linked to a road from Huntsville.
Notice the trim on this front porch at the top just under the eaves. It's gorgeous! The trim is called "sawtooth".
And there's an old hitching post out front...
What you notice most about this and other old neighborhoods: no cookie cutter houses!
In a hundred years, will anyone be wandering the streets of modern developments where each house is uniform in size, and boring and all the same, and be exclaiming about their beauty?
I doubt it!
This town, and especially this church were seen in the 1995 movie "Tom and Huck"...
Thanks for walking along today, I hope you enjoyed yet another visit to this quaint, historic little town in the state of Alabama.
