Dothan, Alabama: World's Smallest City Block

A tiny gravel triangle crammed with a stop sign, a yield sign, a street sign, and a tombstone-like marker. For something so small, there's a lot to see...

World's Smallest City Block

On our journey, we parked our vehicle next to the block [commemorating the World's Smallest City Block]. Don't blink. You will miss it.

World's Smallest City Block

The monument's still there. The streets and parking lots right around it are pretty empty, so it's easy to find somewhere to park and walk over. Really close to downtown Dothan and several of the city's wall murals.

Empty parking lots? More people should be driving to Dothan to see the World's Smallest City Block monument.
