  • Great historical stop! Admission is only $5/person and they take credit cards.it doesn't take a long time to see and read everything, but there are a lot of great photos and facts of the area and residents, including Harper Lee and Truman Capote. Interesting stores and cafes surround the courthouse in the square.

  • Nothing like experiencing a play derived from one the most important novels of its era in the town that it was written in. I get something different out of it everytime I see the play. "To Kill a Mockingbird" was an excellently done production from the stage to the acting. We loved it. It even drew spectators all the way from Australia! A big thumbs up to all those involved. The Courthouse is well preserved, creaky original steps and all!
