Located in the Historic District of Selma, Alabama at the foot of the famous Edmund Pettus Bridge,
the scene of “Bloody Sunday,” the National Voting Rights Museum & Institute is the cornerstone of the
contemporary struggle for voting rights and human dignity.

This was a special stop on our August Road Trip.

Grandparents Home in Lincoln, Alabama — Image by kenne

My brother and I live with our grandparents
in Lincoln while our mother was in business college.
It was during this time, the late 1940s,
that I started school, and discovered girls. 
Plenty of childhood dreams 
happen in this little country town.

Lincoln art-72Old Town Lincoln, Alabama — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Most streets in Lincoln
were paved in the late ’40s
turning into gravel and clay
just outside Lincoln Station.

I was surprised to see
some of the buildings
still standing fifty years
after leaving this small town.

A place an adventurist kid
could take risks and survive —
a village by any other name
in northeast Alabama.
