Take the Virtual Tour of Linn Henley Research Library...Birmingham, Alabama

Dear Readership,

Please do enjoy a virtual tour of the Linn Henley Research Library in Birmnigham, Alabama. Do this by just clicking on the link which is provided for you at the end of this message.

Linn-Henley Research Library is used by historians and genealogists within the deep south of the United States. You will see why genealogical researchers hold this library with such a well-deserved esteem; its collections are extensive and the environment is one which promotes research. The research librarians seem to have an unlimited knowledge of genealogical matters and are so helpful.

This library has something else: an important collection of early maps...some dating from the 1600's.

As you take the virtual tour, you will feel as though you are in an art museum as there are breath-taking murals on the wall which look down upon the researchers. This library is my very most favorite place in the world to be, and for the traveler, it is only a couple of blocks from the interstate I-20.

Click on the link, and scroll downwards until you see the picture of the outside sign re the reserach library. Below the picture will be the link for the virtual tour which you may like to take. Do prepare a cup of tea or coffee and spend the next moments visiting the Linn Henley Research Library. Indeed, this particular libary is such an important part of my world....come share it! And, do share the link with other researchers who may have an interest.

Note: There is a hotel across the street from the Linn Henley Research Library: it is the old, historical and very elegant Tutwiler Hotel... which is now run by Hampton Inn.
