    Historical Sign About Hooper

    by Basaic Written Aug 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Johnson J. Hooper is a kind of favorite son of Dadeville. He was born in North Carolina but moved to Dadeville, Alabama where he became a newspaper editor and a lawyer. He was also a Secretary of the Confederate Congress. Hooper published the "Adventures of Captain Simon Suggs" one of the raciest books of the time, in 1845. It was described as "broadly, cruelly, and uncouthly humorous".

    There are several buildings surrounding the court house square that are historic and much older than the court house itself. Probably most noteworthy is the Tallapposa County Bank Building which was built in 1894.

    Tallapoosa County Courthouse

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dadeville is a pleasant little town along US Highway 280 near the intersection with Alabama Highway 49 which leads to the Horseshoe Bend National Military Park. As the county seat it is also the home of the Tallapoosa County Courthouse. This is one of the newer court houses in the state, having been completed in 1962, but it is still fairly pretty.
