One of these rural towns in particular is Forkland, which is filled with lots of charm. For information about this charming rural town, take a look below.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Forkland, which was incorporated in 1974, is a tiny rural town in Greene County, Alabama. Even though it's small in size, this town offers a lot of charm.
One of Forkland's most charming structures is St. John's-In-The-Prairie (now known as St. John's Episcopal Church), which was erected in 1860. This Gothic-style church was originally located nine miles south of Greensboro, but it's been at its current location since 1878-79.
Another charming place in Forkland is Jim Bird's Farm. Established in 1993, this unique farm is a large field that's scattered with whimsical characters and/or sculptures made from a variety of materials such as hay, scrap metal, junk, and so much more.
A couple of characters you'll likely see during your visit to Jim Bird's Farm include a pirate made from a bale of hay, and the...
...Tin Man, which is probably the most popular character of all. Don't forget your camera! You'll most certainly want your picture taken alongside this towering sculpture.
By the mid-1800s, cotton plantations were quite popular in the Forkland area. One of the most charming and well-known plantation homes, which was built between the years 1832-55, is the Rosemount Plantation.
Another charming plantation home that's located near the town of Forkland is the Thornhill Plantation, which was built in 1833. This Colonial-style home is a definite must-see!
And finally, for those of you who wish to stay the night in Forkland, you'll most certainly want to reserve a spot at Forkland Campground. This campground is perfect for families, and it's located on the shore of Demopolis Lake. Click
