    a very interesting thing to do when in the birmingham area is to drive around the town of mountain brook and nearby vestavia hills. these two areas offer beautiful hilly roads that are lined with beautiful mansions and estates. for those interested in nature and architecture mountain brook is a very nice place to visit.

    samford university was originally founded as howard college in marion alabama in 1841. the college was named after john howard who was a christian prison reformer. howard college moved to the birmingham area in 1887 and to it's present location in shades valley in 1953. in 1964 howard college was renamed samford university after frank samford. of interest to the tourist is its beautiful colonial style buildings and their athletic events.
