Carrollton, AL, may be home to just under 1,000 residents, but it does have a claim to fame. It’s home to the Pickens County Courthouse, which is not just any courthouse; it is renowned for the local legend of arsonist Henry Wells. His spectral image is (some say) etched in one of the building’s garret windows. After you’re done touring this fascinating spot, enjoy the small-town charm of Carrollton before visiting the rest of Sweet Home Alabama.
