The center of Alabama is also located on the steps of Main Hall at the University of Montevallo. It's marked with a star.

Elevated graves. Center of Alabama

Several oddities in this cemetery. The Center of Alabama marker is odd itself, but the mound of rocks is an elevated gravesite. There is grass on top with a tombstone. Also, another of the graves has a hole in the tomb and is creepy.

A concrete marker denotes the geographical center of the state of Alabama. It sits in a cemetery just off Highway 25 outside of Montevallo. There is some kind of old stone foundation behind it.

When next in Alabama, we hope to visit the metropolises of "Randy" and "Buford," which someone has thoughtfully carved into the monument map.
