You won't read about it, you won't hear about it, and you won't know there's a treasure hidden in this building. Take the time to visit the Tuscaloosa Federal Building, ask the security guards how to get to the second floor viewing area, and prepare...More

The building and murals are a fabulous addition to old downtown Tuscaloosa. Other towns will want one but the $45+ M price tag may be a deterrent. Be sure to stroll the adjoining park to the East with a brick wall of plaques for Tuscaloosa...More
