Mules and Pottery
If you love history, if you love art, and if you love something “different,” you’ve come to the right place! Located in the northwest Alabama city of Hamilton, Brown & Son's Pottery is the only known mule-powered pug mill still operating in the United States. Blue the mule mixes and grinds the clay used to make their unique and one-of-a-kind pieces of pottery. The Marion County Arts Trail features everything from wall size murals, a functioning blacksmith shop, and Southern-inspired bluegrass music, to sculptures made from gourds and a grand theatre from the 1930s.
