    Veterans' Monument

    There is a nice and unique veterans' monument on the grounds of the old courthouse. I feel it is important to remember the sacrifices made by our veterans and their contributions to our freedom and our way of life.

    Monroeville has a number of murals many related to the book and movie, "To Kill a Mockingbird". It is always nice to see towns beautify their areas through the use of art and/or sculptures.

    To Kill a Mockingbird

    Harper Lee, the author of To Kill a Mockingbird, was born and raised in Monroeville. The fictional town of Maycomb is modeled on Monroeville. The novel received the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Truman Capote, a childhood neighbor and friend of Harper Lee, grew up in Monroeville. Novelist Mark Childress was also born there. As of 2006, an estimated 30,000 tourists visited Monroeville annually because of its association with To Kill a Mockingbird. Each May the Monroe County Heritage Museum stages an amateur play based on the book. The all-volunteer cast has been invited to perform in Washington, D.C., Hull, England, and Jerusalem.

    In 1997 the Alabama Legislature designated Monroeville and Monroe County the "Literary Capital of Alabama."

    Radley's Fountain Grille: Good Seafood

    by Basaic Written Apr 3, 2011

    I wanted to eat here because of the name. One of the most interesting characters in "To Kill a Mockingbird" was "Boo" Radley. Radley's serves chicken, steak, ribs and pasta but most come here for the seafood. They also have cheesecake and key lime pie for dessert. Hours are 11 AM to 9 PM Monday to Saturday. They recently started to open on Sunday but I am not sure of the hours.
