Twin States Car Show & Motorfest - Frisco City/Monroeville Alabama - May 25th
Located in Southwest Alabama. What would become Frisco City started out as two mid-19th century communities named Lufkin and Snider. It initially incorporated as the town of Jones Mill in 1909. It was named for the owner of the local grist mill. Four years later on November 4, 1913, the town was renamed as Roy for Roy Megargel, owner of the Gulf, Florida, and Alabama Railroad (GFA). Monroeville is known as the hometown of two prominent writers of the post-World War II period, Truman Capote and Harper Lee, who were childhood friends in the 1930s. Lee's 1960 novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, earned her the Pulitzer Prize. The the Alabama Legislature designated Monroeville and Monroe County as the "Literary Capital of Alabama." (from wikipedia)
