My Hometown

While browsing the AJC this afternoon, I was surprised to find Gadsden, Alabama featured as a “one tank trip” destination. I lived there for 7-8 years as a child and spent several summers there in my teens, and hadn’t ever heard of any of the mentioned attractions other than Noccalula Falls. I was even more surprised to read that Gadsden was supposedly voted “America’s Most Livable City” by somebody back in 2000. I have to wonder if any of the voters actually lived there for any length of time, as I largely remember horrible schools (no libraries, even), staunch racism, and general intolerance. I do have some good memories, of course, but they’re of people more than places, so tourists wouldn’t have access to them.
