Local History


Alabama - US


WETUMPKA, Ala. - Jan. 27, 2014 - PRLog -- Back when dinosaurs roamed Alabama, a meteor created a horseshoe of hills, and Wetumpka has been lucky ever since. Celebrating a city once paired with Chicago as one of the “two most promising cities of the West”, Wetumpka conveys as much town pride as that of any metropolis in this local book from Arcadia Publishing’s admired Images of America series.

Worshiped as Alabama’s “Little Corner of Greece,” Wetumpka offers tales of the Creek Indians, destructive floods, French forts, and a replica of the Greek Temple of Hera, all chronicled in over 200 vintage images in this local history book.

Authors Joe Allen Turner and Jan Wood beam with pride at this paperback monument to their town. “[Wetumpka] has maintained the integrity of a small town close knit community, while continuing to grow in population almost in spite of itself,” Jan Wood said.
