Tallasseee in Pictures:
The Little Things

By Leigh Anne Butler

There is something about a small town that feels special. Tallassee is no exception. There is an immense amount of history and hidden beauty in our little town, "The Treasure on the Tallapoosa."

In Tallassee, and really any community, many of the familiar little things that we see or pass on a daily basis become just that - familiar, causing us to go without noticing the beauty in them.

Tallassee has so much hidden beauty that deserves to be recognized. Many times people, including myself, tend to focus on the negative things - things that need to "fixed" or updated. My hope is that everyone will begin to embrace the hidden beauty in our great little city and realize how special it really is.

For the past year or so, I've taken photographs of things around town that caught my eye; architectural details of historic buildings, the beauty of our landscape or remnants of things from our city's past.

These are beautiful, little hidden gems that are right here waiting to be noticed.
