Evergreen, Alabama is my childhood home. To quote Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sweet Home Alabama! I make yearly trips back to south Alabama. And, when I am there, I try to take a few photos.
Some of these photographs show scenes around my home town of Evergreen, Alabama. And, others show some of the surrounding area in Conecuh County.
Plant life around Evergreen
Because of the pleasant climate, there are growing and flowering plants almost all year. Here are some examples:

Special photographs in and around Evergreen
Several of the locations shown in the portfolio above deserve special mention. One such location is St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. And, some others are the Bull Slough Bridge and the Sepulga River.
St. Mary’s Episcopal Church
St. Mary’s was built in 1880. Over the years the building has fallen on hard times and has been home to a string of various congregations. To see the front, go to Explore Rural SW Alabama.
Bull Slough Bridge
Not far from Evergreen, Alabama, is the Sepulga River. Crossing the Sepulga near the community of Brooklyn is the stately Bull Slough Bridge. The bridge, built in 1924, is a 232-foot long single-truss bridge.
In the last few years, the idea of canoeing or kyaking down the Sepulga River has become very popular. In fact, the route down the Sepulga is called the Sepulga River Canoe Trail. To learn more about the trail, go to their Website. Here are two photos of the Sepulga: one shows the water high and the other shows the water very low.
Our Evergreen, Alabama home
One of my ancestors, A. A. McKittrick, lived in this 1840 house.
A Civil War surgeon, Dr. McKittrick was one of the first doctors in Evergreen, Alabama. In fact, when phones were introduced, his number was 3: after the mayor and police department.
