Sweet Home Alabama - 19th century homes in Alabama

Sweet Home Alabama

The nineteenth-century homes featured in this program stand as monuments to a forgotten way of life that shaped the way we live today. Ranging from simple dogtrot cabins to elegant mansions, twenty rural and small-town homes are featured in short essays on topics such as architectural styles, the people who built them, or the people who care for them now. Based on the book, “Silent in the Land” by Chip Cooper, Harry Knopke, and Robert Gamble.

Sweet Home Alabama was produced by Max Shores in 1993 for the weekly series, The Alabama Experience on Alabama Public Television.
