AAA Editor Notes

Spring Hill Historic District, off I-65 exit 5A to Springhill Avenue, about 6.5 miles w. of the waterfront, was founded in the 1820s as a wooded summer retreat far from the inner city, which was ravaged by yellow fever. Greek Revival houses dating from the 1850s can be seen. Also in this area is Spring Hill College, established in 1830 and said to be the first institution of higher learning in Alabama.
