Clayton, Alabama


"Octagon House" - Petty Roberts Beatty House, 103 N. Midway, Clayton, Alabama. 

The structure was 1 of the 2 antebellum octagonal houses built in Alabama and is the only 1 to survive.

Clayton, AL is a fun, quiet, quaint, slow paced, area of Alabama ... we really did find a lot of smaller towns to check out on this recent trip in late April 2023, we got around a bit of South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama which we had 1 week to explore. We asked the locals, I would so recommend that to anyone who is looking for great finds (be it for food, shopping, off the wall locations, get a list going, you never know what they might suggest!!!) in all travel locations, great tip there!!! They did suggest this fun restaurant. I preferred the bologna sandwich (makes me think of my childhood, the good ole' days. My parents would fry me up a piece for a sandwich, it was simple but so so so good. This was THICK CUT BOLOGNA though, ever had that???) over the chicken one. So fun to check them out ...they are a recommendation of the ladies who were cooking there. I didn't realize that Alabama was a state that we have never shared before here on the blog, news to me ....we have visited Alabama multiple times I wonder why I've never shared it before, has me super curious??! Thank you for stopping by today, sure hope you are well and taking care of yourself. Please stop by again really soon. Beth ( ;

Weird. We just fried thick cut bologna!

This house is peculiar and magnificent.

Now that's a different kind of house. But I love it! Looks like a great place to eat. We had smoked bologna yesterday. If you haven't had it, I suggest you give it a try sometime. Hope you have a lovely week ahead.

Neat place for a restaurant. I remember getting thick bologna.

I can think of one octagonal house in my province, but strongly doubt I could ever find it again.

I remember a little octagon school house that sits above the Penna TP just outside of Phila.
