Literature of the Black Belt

Sumter County Courthouse:  Livingston, Alabama -- This structure, built in 1902, replaced the building which burned.  County records were spared because the probate office was in a separate building.  Photo by John Craiger.

Webb Hall, University of West Alabama:  Livingston, Alabama -- Built in 1915, this building was for years a women's dormitory.  Remodeled in 1978 and converted to an administration building, it retains its charming front porch with old-fashioned rocking chairs.  Photo by Ellen DeRamus.

The Covered Bridge: Livingston, Alabama -- Built in 1861 to span the Sucarnochee River, the bridge was eventually moved to Alamuchee Creek, finally brought to the UWA Campus in 1871. Photo by John Craiger.

County Commission Building:  Livingston, Alabama -- Dating from the late 1830's this charming little building earlier housed the probate office and the town's public library.  Photo by Ellen DeRamus.
