Researching in Limestone County, Alabama

09 Jan

One of my favorite repositories is the Limestone County Archives in Athens, Alabama. The building itself, a former train depot, is a pleasant destination for a research trip. They also have a massive collection of materials, and the staff is always friendly and helpful.

Most of the historical records have been moved from the courthouse to this charming place. It holds many books and files, some of which date back to 1818 before Alabama became a state. Court records, minute books, wills, deeds, mortgages, marriages, newspapers, loose files, and various county history books are here. I enjoy working with Limestone County’s records because they are organized and accessible, and many have been digitized.
