Robert Oliver Mellown

The University of Alabama: A Guide to the Campusand Its Architecture is a richly illustrated guidebook to the architecture and development of the University of Alabama’s campus as it has evolved over the last two centuries.In 1988 the University of Alabama Press published Robert Oliver Mellown’s The University of Alabama: A Guide to the Campus, a culmination of a decade’s worth of research into both the facts and the legends surrounding the architecture, history, and traditions of the Capstone.Over twenty years later, this new guide brings to light the numerous additions, expansions, and renovations the university has undergone on its spacious grounds in Tuscaloosa. In addition to updated sections devoted to the university’s historic landmarks—such as Foster Auditorium, where “the stand in the schoolhouse door” occurred; Denny Chimes,where the handprints and footprints of famous Tide athletes are memorialized in concrete; and the Gorgas House, which with stood the destruction of Union troops at the end of the Civil War—new sections account for the acquisition of Bryce Hospital’s campus, the expansions at Bryant-Denny Stadium to accommodate the growing Crimson Tide fan base, and the burgeoning student recreation facilities, playing fields, and residential communities.Chapters are arranged into various campus tours for walking or driving—Antebellum, Victorian, Early Twentieth-Century, East Quad, West Quad, Science and Engineering Corridor, Student Life, Bryce, Medical, Southeast, Athletics, and Off Campus. Alumni, prospective students and their parents, new faculty, out-of-state visitors, and foreign dignitaries will all welcome this useful, compact, and colorful guide to one of the most beautiful campuses in the country.

Tuscaloosa Through Time (America Through Time)

Serena Blount

Over its two hundred years of history, the city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, has held a prominent position within the state, not only as home to the state's flagship university, but also taking turns as the State Capitol, as the location for the state mental health hospital, as the site of Civil War conflict, and as a Civil Rights landmark. A locale marked by rapid growth at the time of its formal incorporation, today's Tuscaloosa replicates that rapid development--witnessing industrial and commercial growth, a rising population, and an expanding University. Yet residents of contemporary Tuscaloosa are never far from their history and forebears, for beautiful reminders of its past dot the city and lend to its grace and charms, while uglier aspects of that past lend to its self-awareness and point the way toward more enlightened and just self-governance. Indeed, this rich and varied history claims for Tuscaloosa a compelling position in American memory.

Tuscaloosa (Images of America)

Amalia K. Amaki

Tuscaloosa (Choctaw for “black warrior”) is one of the oldest cities in West Alabama. It shares its name with a chief who fought Spanish conquistador Hernando de Soto in 1540 and a river that stretches from the Appalachian foothills in the north-central region to the floodplain and lowlands of the south. Called “The Druid City” since the 1800s, when large water oaks lined its main streets, Tuscaloosa remains a center of industry, commerce, health care, education, and cultural life, with the university being its dominant source. The former capital (from 1826 to 1846) is affiliated with the Alabama Crimson Tide, catfish, Dreamland, the Black Warrior River, a strong folk and craft tradition, and Gov. George Wallace’s 1963 “stand at the schoolhouse door.”

60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Birmingham: Including Anniston, Gadsden, and Tuscaloosa

Russell Helms

Including hikes near AnnistonGadsdenCullman, and Tuscaloosa, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Birmingham reaches out to provide the best day hikes within an hour's drive of the Magic City. From mine-riddled Ruffner Mountain in the Eastwood/Irondale area to the blast furnaces of Tannehill State Park, area hiking paths cross hidden ore shafts, pass over vast deposits of coal, and circle immense limestone quarries. In fact, hiking in Birmingham almost always leads back to three things: iron, coal, and limestone-the history of the Birmingham area and all facets of its growth are welded to its vast mineral wealth. Those hikes, though, that have a minimal connection to iron and steel, such as the wild trails of Talladega National Forest, stake their reputation on a fourth natural resource: rugged physical beauty.

Family Maps of Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, Deluxe Edition

Gregory A Boyd J.D.

Locating original landowners in maps has never been an easy task-until now. This volume in the Family Maps series contains newly created maps of original landowners (patent maps) in what is now Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, gleaned from the indexes of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. But it offers much more than that. For each township in the county, there are two additional maps accompanying the patent map: a road map and a map showing waterways, railroads, and both modern and many historical city-centers and cemeteries. Included are indexes to help you locate what you are looking for, whether you know a person's name, a last name, a place-name, or a cemetery. The combination of maps and indexes are designed to aid researchers of American history or genealogy to explore frontier neighborhoods, examine family migrations, locate hard-to-find cemeteries and towns, as well as locate land based on legal descriptions found in old documents or deeds. The patent-maps are essentially plat maps but instead of depicting owners for a particular year, these maps show original landowners, no matter when the transfer from the federal government was completed. Dates of patents typically begin near the time of statehood and run into the early 1900s. 600 pages with 143 total maps What's Mapped in this book (that you'll not likely find elsewhere) . . . 11590 Parcels of Land (with original landowner names and patent-dates labeled in the relevant map) 212 Cemeteries plus . . . Roads, and existing Rivers, Creeks, Streams, Railroads, and Small-towns (including some historical), etc. What YEARS are these maps for? Here are the counts for parcels of land mapped, by the decade in which the corresponding land patents were issued: Decade Parcel-count 1820s 2505 1830s 3235 1840s 414 1850s 2855 1860s 1106 1870s 3 1880s 326 1890s 563 1900s 116 1910s 372 1920s 91 1930s 1 1940s 1 What Cities and Towns are in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama (and in this book)?
