Gadsden Alabama History
Alabama is known for its rich history of architecture, architecture and architecture in general, but we may know less about the wealth of architecturally diverse historic buildings. This could be even more evident if we capture the beauty and detail of Alabama's buildings in pen and ink in our new book Alabama History: Historic Buildings.
Kill a Mockingbird, "is one of the most famous books in Alabama history, and there is no doubt that there are many more books about Alabama's historic buildings in pencil and ink. The exhibition also includes more than 100 photographs from the Alabama Historical Society's collection. The TUBB courthouse is immortalized in its original black and white color, as well as in a series of photographs of other Alabama buildings and monuments.
The exhibition, which coincides with the 200th anniversary of Alabama, has been on display in Gadsden since February 23 and will travel to several other Alabama communities.
The exhibition was made possible by a grant from the Alabama Historical Society, which provided a copy of the book "Alabama History: American Indians and the Tennessee River" at the Gadsden Museum of Natural History.

Founded in 1925 as the Alabama School of Trades, the school is the oldest in the state - it is run by business schools and is located on the old Gadsden State Campus and was the first of its kind in Alabama. In 1962, the State of Alabama took over the sponsorship of this school and in 1972 it was renamed the State Technical Institute GADS. It is now the largest technical school in the United States and the second largest in Georgia after Georgia State University.
It was founded by a group of black veterans from Etowah County who expressed their dissatisfaction after being denied access to Gadsden State College and the Alabama State Technical Institute. Streight was to cross the state of Alabama and cut off the road to Gadden, Alabama's largest city with about 1,000 residents. When the car entered GADSden, it passed the Louisville & Nashville Railroad Bridge, which spans the Coosa River.
Gadsden is located on the north side of the Coosa River, north of Gadsdale, Alabama, and south of Tuscaloosa. The tornado began at about 11: 30 a.m. CEST on March 2, 1963 and moved east to west through the state of Alabama before crossing the Alabama-Georgia border. It passed from north to south through Alabama and Georgia until it reached the Alabama / Georgia state line at about 1152 MST.
Gadsden is located on the north side of the Coosa River, north of Gadsdale, Alabama, and south of Tuscaloosa. The area where Etowah County was formed was originally known as the Mississippi Territory and was formerly occupied by the Creek and Cherokee Indians. Alabama's Great Southern Railroad, now a section of the Queen Crescent Route, was built in the county between 1867 and 1870 and is known by some as Alabama and Chattanooga Railroad. Originally known as the Mississippi Territory, the area from which it formed was once occupied by the stream and Cherokee Indians.
Etowah County also had the Dwight Manufacturing Company of Alabama City, which manufactured cotton goods, and the Dwight Manufacturing Company of Alabama City, a finishing plant. There was an electric car line connecting Gadsden, Alabama, City and Attalla, with the lines running through the industrial plants.
The Alabama Great Southern Railroad provided transport, connecting the steamer Coosa with Gadsden over a short distance through Attalla, the latter town. The first steel mill was built in Gadden in 1905, and the iron for the Tennessee and Coosa railroads was laid in the early 1920s, coinciding with the first electric highway in Etowah County.
Last year, the Tennessee and Coosa Railroad was extended by several miles from Atlanta to the foot of the Sandhills, providing direct access to the Atlanta railroads for the city of Gadsden and the rest of Etowah County. In a short time, the Rome - Decatur railway line will have completed the road and will be passing through this city by road and train. The Tennessee & Coosas Railroad has in recent years extended the few miles to Atlanta from the foot of these sandy mountains, as well as extending it a little over a mile from Gadden to Athens.
