A Trip to Fayette

Yesterday was a beautiful day, hot yes, but a nice day nonetheless.  Momma and I were up early to drive over from Fulton to Fayette, the county seat of Fayette County, Alabama.   We both were surprised at the neat little town of Fayette.  The leaders and citizens have done much to improve and update their downtown area... very impressive.  After a morning in the records room at the courthouse, below, we had very good lunch at Ricky G's Diner before heading to the county's genealogical resources on the second floor of the library.    We didn't mean to stumble upon the headquarters for Golden Eagle Syrup company, but lookee here we did!  Long-time readers of this blog will remember my post nearly three years ago about this famous southern biscuit syrup.   Momma wants to go back later for a tour of the facilities!   The old brick building is about a block away from the old railroad depot.
