Alabama Oddities: Meteorite Sculpture


[gtxvideo vid=”lbIhMGgk” playlist=”” pid=”2gxTqEDg” thumb=”″ vtitle=”Meteore strike”]

The town of Sylacauga is known for it’s rich, white marble and for something a little extra-terrestrial.  Back in 1954, a meteorite burned through the sky and eventually smashed through a home and hit a woman.  The woman lived but the legend of the Hodges Meteorite was born.

Nowadays, there’s a beautiful marble sculpture to the meteorite on display for the world to see.  Jeff Sanders has more in Alabama Oddities.
