Sunday driving: the Rural Studio, Alabama

I’ve been clicking, double-clicking and scrolling my way through some of the back roads of Hale County, Alabama this weekend, having discovered that the Google Maps car has caught on camera some of the sites and buildings of the Rural Studio, the famous outreach of Auburn University….

A handful of famous projects are visible (that’s Newbern’s fire hall on the left of the view above) although the camera car has stuck mainly to highways and the occasional odd detour down a county road, perhaps when lost or trying to double back. Use this interactive map from American Public Media to plot your own journey.
