Known as the
Yellowhammer State, Alabama is home to stories as diverse as its landscape and population.  From its northern mountains to southern coastal ports, rural farmland, college towns and urban centers, Alabama is firmly rooted in the Deep South.  Descendants of white settlers, native peoples, African slaves and other ethnic groups have left behind a broad tapestry of stories.  

Alabama’s Lookout Mountain is home to several ghost stories, and Bill Sketoe’s Hole is a legendary haunted site.  Discover these and many other Alabama stories below.
