Each May in the courtroom and on the lawn of the Old Monroe County Courthouse, actors put on a production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird. Now a museum, the courthouse in Monroe County, southwestern Alabama, has been called "one of the handsomest and most conveniently appointed [courthouses] in the state."
To Kill a Mockingbird is a story about a man who is accused of a crime he didn't commit. The author of the book, Harper Lee, was born in 1926 and she grew up with the old courthouse as the center of all activity on the town square. It's easy to imagine how the elegant courtroom of the old courthouse may have inspired parts of her book. When the book was made into a movie, it is said that Lee insisted that the director of the film visit the Old Monroe County Courthouse before constructing the movie sets. The star of the movie, actor Gregory Peck, also came to see the courthouse and town. He later said that the role of Atticus Finch, who is the accused man's lawyer, was his favorite of all time.
