Mooresville, Alabama

On a recent trip to Huntsville, Alabama, Hub and I stopped at Mooresville, the first town incorporated by the Alabama Territorial legislature on November 16, 1818.  Referred to as Alabama's Williamsburg, the entire town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

President James Garfield once preached here.

Mooresville Post Office is the oldest continuing operating post office in the state and one of the oldest in the country.  It was built from sawmill lumber.

The day we were there, the friendly little town was all dressed up for Christmas.  
Mooresville is located just off Exit 2 on Interstate 565.
