Capitol Park is a photographer’s playground. Old columns and pieces of architecture still stand from what once used to be the capitol building. The building caught fire in 1923 and fortunately, parts of the original structure still stand, making it a great place to visit to learn a bit about Alabama history, as well as take a few photos in the process.
The Hodges Meteorite
If you enjoy the unusual, you’ll love the Hodges Meteorite. One of the only meteors to have ever struck a human, the Hodges Meteorite can be seen at the Alabama Museum of Natural History. This space rock fragment fell from the sky in 1954 and hit Ann Hodges on her side, only causing a bruise in the process. This one-in-a-million chance left Ann with lots of unwanted attention which is why she donated the rock to the museum for visitors to enjoy.
