(Before It's News)

Here are some of the highlights of Union Springs, AL.

While I was down there yesterday evening, I took the liberty of snapping some photos around town. My travelogue essay on Selma was a big hit. Hopefully, these photos will help the rest of America get a better sense of what it is like to live in a small Southern town that is 75 percent black and 7 percent Hispanic.


I’ve always wondered who lives in this lavender house in Union Springs. Could it be The Great Grape Ape?


A Hispanic family now live in this blighted old home. Notice the clothesline on the front porch. Lots of illegal aliens live in Union Springs and work at the Wayne Farms chicken plant. They have taken over the finest old homes in the center of town and have reduced them to this. Whenever I am driving through Union Springs, I never cease to be struck by the jarring contrast to the Eufaula Historic District.



For as long as I can remember, the Bullock County Correctional Facility is the only employer in Union Springs which always seems to be hiring.


The Penn & Seaborn Law Firm is probably the finest looking building in Union Springs. This is Myron Penn’s law office. Aside from poverty and unemployment, Democrat trial lawyers are one of the only things this town has in abundance.


If you are planning to grab a bite to eat in Union Springs, you don’t have many options. Union Springs does have a Subway and McDonald’s though.


When I stopped here to get some Country Cooking, I half expected Daryl Dixon to emerge from behind the building with his crossbow.

Note: Unfortunately, it was getting dark I didn’t get the chance to snap as many photos as I wanted. This is a work in progress. I will edit this essay and add some more photos on my next trip to Union Springs.
