Took a drive to Carrolton the other day. It’s an old town that still has some antebellum churches. Something different. Don’t mind the crooked photos. I was trying to get as much as I could from the truck windows.
It’s actually a nice little town. Population 190 ten years ago. We’d been before and walked around the square.
Boasting of the fact that Carrollton is restored and not renovated, Carrollton is one of the largest historic districts on the National Register of Historic Places in the United States.There are approximately eighteen historic sites located around Court Square, making a walking tour an enjoyable event.
One of the best preserved sites in Carrollton is the Merrill Museum, which houses the John Sidney McCain collection, a compilation of personal and military memorabilia belonging to the great grandfather and grandfather of Senator John S. McCain, U. S. Presidential candidate in 2008.
Of the five churches located in Carrollton, four were established in the 1830’s and one in 1870, and all continue with active congregations.https://carrolltonms.net
That infallible source really wants you to know that both the United States, and Confederate Battle flags are flown at the courthouse. The latter in honor of the fallen.
