Historical Talladega, Alabama (pics!)

newdawn1895May 18, 2009

Hello, I sometimes come into your forum because I enjoy reading about your old houses. I own one myself but I didn't come in to talk about me or my house. Actually I took some pictures of my sister's town in Talladega Alabama and thought I would share some of them with you.

The photos don't do them justice but I hope you enjoy.

.....Jane

Oh what the heck, the view from my front porch. Nothing like the grand homes of Talladega, but it's home.

Wow! Thanks for sharing. Many times, I've seen the sign for Talladega when driving to Birmingham, but I've never driven through the town. I no longer have any connections to B'ham, but if I'm ever in the area, I'll be sure to tour Talladega.

Oh gorgeous! I love the homes, love the grounds. Your porch looks so nice and inviting. Looks like a great place to enjoy a nice warm cup of morning coffee or tea. Thanks for sharing :)

Thank you Missouri and redbirds. Talladega is not a place I would want to live but some of the homes are gorgeous as you can see.

Jane, I love those houses!! Our little town has only a few big old homes; most of the old houses are small. Ours is very simple, but as you say "I love it!" Sometime I will have to snap some pictures of the old neighborhoods in Denver. There are some fabulous old houses there.

Thank you for making us smile.

Jane I have passed by Talladega over the years when I was at Cheaha running. I had no idea there were such great houses there. We even have gone into town when camping to eat dinner but I missed all of this. Thank you for posting. As always I LOVE your porch...c

Hey Caroline,

Yes, Talladega has some great old houses, many of them. Take any side street off Battleship and you will be amazed.

But like I said before, I wouldn't care to live in Talladega.
