These Photo(s) of the Week are centered around the book, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” by  Harper Lee.  The film adaption of the novel was centered around the Monroe County Courthouse in Harper  Lee’s home town, Monroville, AL.  The film was heavily influenced by the courthouse with production designers measuring and photographing the building and then recreating the courtroom on a sound stage for filming. Truman Capote was also from Monroeville  and featured the courthouse in his work, “A Christmas Memory.”

This historic courthouse building served as the Monroe County Courthouse from 1903 to 1967. The courthouse is now a museum. To see more of the courthouse go to my creative blog. You will need to copy this into your browser: http://frankbrueske.com/monroe-county-courthouse-al/
