Courthouse-downtown Ashville

This is a beautiful old courthouse sitting on a square and surrounded by a few law offices, real estate office, a few cafes, banks, and church. There is a confederate marker to the right.

My husband and I moved to this town in May of 2003, as a result of my husband's job. We love it so far, and it is conveniently located about 40 miles from Birmingham.

Early history of Ashville/St.Clair County

St. Clair County was created in 1818 by lands ceded from the Creek Indian Nation. Named for General Arthur St.Clair, a former governor of the Northwest Territory. Ashville named after John Ash in 1822, a prominent settler.

Victorian style tea room and antique shop

This is a beautiful Victorian style tea room and antique shop, decorated for the holidays. It's even prettier at night because it is well lit.
