Historical Mooresville, AL
Chris and I drove to Alabama to meet our Jessie girl at a half way point between Florida and Missouri. Jessie flew to Florida to visit her Godmother for a week. This small town was a good meet up location. We were unware that this historic place existed and felt so blessed to be able to drive around and explore this historic place.

Sweet Homes Alabama: Greystone Legacy
Enter your personal work of art. It starts with the washed brick exterior in the style of an English castle, then there's the Castle Door that leads you to the grand foyer and formal dining room but don’t stop here. This luxurious theme carries throughout the house created by the interior design of Sue Selby. Be sure to enjoy the Alice in Wonderland Suite upstairs; a place for a child’s fantasy and fun. The luxurious Fit for a King and Queen Master Suite on the main level offers the peace and grandeur of a fine hotel overlooking a world class golf course. The raised paneling of the Home Office accented by the suede painted walls draws images of an English Abby. Any chef would find themselves at home in the gourmet kitchen while absorbing the stunning views that bring the outdoors in. Dinner will be served on the screened in porch overlooking the Legacy Course hole 12.

Mooresville Post Office
Mooresville Post Office, c. 1840: The Mooresville Post Office is the oldest operational post office in the state of Alabama and has served the community from the same building since its construction of sawmill lumber in 1840. The mailboxes and office furnishings are even older, having been transferred from the original post office in the Stagecoach Tavern. The mailboxes are numbered 1 - 48, and some families have had the same box numbers for several generations. The building is owned and maintained by the Town of Mooresville.

Flat Stanley Visits North Alabama
Flat Stanley arrived at our home from Nebraska safely on 30 November here in Huntsville, Alabama. Alabama is located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west.
• state flower: Camellia
• state wild flower: Oak-leaf Hydrangea
• state fruit: Blackberry
• state bird: Yellowhammer
Huntsville is about ten miles south of the Alabama-Tennessee state line.
Though the southern part of the state is on the Gulf of Mexico and has white sandy beaches we are in the northern part, 370 miles from the gulf, with mountains. We have four seasons and sometimes we even get a little snow (but not a lot and it doesn't last long).
Huntsville served as the first capital of Alabama from 1819 to 1820.
We live with our cat Peachy. Peachy and Flat Stanley are already good friends.
The part of Alabama that we live in is at the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains which runs all the way from New York to Alabama.
We both play a three stringed musical instrument that sits on your lap to strum called an Appalachian Dulcimer (also called a Mountain Dulcimer). We have taught Flat Stanley how to play and have given her her very own Mountain Dulcimer. The song Flat Stanley liked to play the most is Boil Them Cabbage Down and we are sending along a short video clip of David and Flat Stanley playing this song together.
Flat Stanley arrived in Alabama in time to help Karen and David decorate their home for Christmas; she especially liked the Nativity Scene.
We took Flat Stanley to many interesting places in Alabama. The first place was Athens State University, which is Alabama's oldest college and was founded in 1822, originally an all girls college. The four large pillars in front of Founder's Hall are named Mathew, Mark, Luke & John.
While we were in Athens we saw the Limestone County Court House and on the lawn a statue commemorating the Southern soldiers who fought in the Civil War. We saw the old home of George Houston who was a two term Alabama governor after the Civil War. His home is now a library and the location for the local historical society.
Next we took Flat Stanley to the lodge and marina at Joe Wheeler State Park near Rogersville, Alabama. Joe Wheeler (1836--1906) was a general for the Confederacy during the Civil War. In 1880, Joe Wheeler served in the United States House of Representatives. In 1898, during the Spanish-American war, Joe Wheeler was appointed as a two-star general by U.S. President William McKinley. The Joe Wheeler lodge was decorated for Christmas. In addition to getting her picture taken with some of the Christmas decorations in the lodge Flat Stanley enjoyed seeing all the boats in the marina.
Next we took Flat Stanley to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville which is called Earth's largest space museum. It is also the home of Space Camp, a camp for school age children to stay at for a week and learn all about space exploration. Huntsville is the headquarters for NASA.
Also while we were in Huntsville we stopped at Redstone Arsenal where David works for Army Aviation and saw some of the Army helicopters that he works on.
Then we went to Mooresville, Alabama, a small, old town that was founded about 1818 before Alabama was a state and was just a territory. Among the many very old homes Mooresville also has the oldest continuously operating Post Office in Alabama. The entire town, a picturesque early 19th century village, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places
One of the crops that farmers grow in Alabama is cotton. Flat Stanley had her picture taken with some cotton that we grew a couple years ago in our back yard.
Flat Stanley was an excellent guest and a good traveler who asked many interesting questions about Alabama. As much fun as Flat Stanley had visiting us, she was excited to go back to Nebraska to spend Christmas with Ellen.
We enjoyed having Flat Stanley visit us and hope that she comes back sometime soon, and maybe go to Space Camp!

Top 5 Prettiest Towns in United States
Top 5 Prettiest Towns in United States
#5. Fort Benton, Montana
Fort Benton is a city in and the county seat of Chouteau County, Montana, United States. A portion of the city was designated as a National Historic Landmark District in 1961. Established in 1846, a full generation before the U.S. Civil War, Fort Benton is one of the oldest settlements in the American West. Founded as a fur-trading post in 1847, the town flourished well into the 1860s, when the Gold Rush cash was flowing back eastward. The railroad would eventually put the brakes on the town’s growth, however, but not before Fort Benton earned a reputation as the sort of place where disagreements were regularly settled with sidearms.
#4. Breckenridge, Colorado
In a state known for its charming alpine ski towns, Breckenridge stands out both for its stunning vistas, charming streets, family-friendly vibe and – most importantly, for many visitors – unsurpassed proximity to a wide variety of world-class ski options. With giant peaks, more than 150 trails, North America’s highest chairlift, and a wide variety of options for everyone from the shakiest of beginners to the most jaded back-country daredevils, Breck really does have something for everyone.
#3. Gatlinburg, Tennessee
With its charming, quaint old buildings in the centre of town, its dramatic mountain backdrop and the only ski resort in Tennessee, Gatlinburg has become a popular tourist destination for regional fun-seekers. Located on the border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg benefits from its location as a tourist draw and reinforces it with attractions such as an aerial tramway, an aquarium, white-water rafting, hiking, and even a haunted house. But let’s not kid ourselves: as pretty and irresistible the town is, the real draw in this part of Tennessee is the nature.
#2. Camden, Maine
Camden is a famous summer colony in the Mid-Coast region of Maine. Similar to Bar Harbor, Nantucket and North Haven, Camden is well known for its summer community of wealthy Northeasterners, mostly from Boston, New York and Philadelphia. “It’s like a movie set. In fact, it has often been a movie set.” Camden retains a certain salty grit and allows more of its working-class roots to show — though, like many New England seaside villages, the residents are more likely to be affluent these days.
#1. Newport, Rhode Island
Known for being the city of some of the “Summer White Houses”. Like a town stuck in time but with the occasional hole in the space-time continuum to allow for modern touches, Newport, with its stunning harbor and bevy of old homes, is the quintessential New England town. Newport’s fame began as a 19th century summertime visitors’ magnet of a town, and it still reliably draws in clusters of visitors, both for the daytime shopping, eating, and sightseeing options.
