1. Trussville is Rich with History
Looking for a town with southern charm and rich history? Trussville has both characteristics. The Cahaba Project is one of Trussville's most well-known historical events. It was a government housing project built in downtown Trussville in the 1930s. From 1936 to 1938, 243 single-family homes and 44 duplexes were constructed. Residents rented from the government until 1947, when the homes were sold to individuals for $4,400 to $9,000 each. These homes can still be found surrounding an area known as the mall in Trussville. Take a stroll down Parkway Drive or North Mall and you’ll find historical markers on the exteriors of residences.
In addition to the Cahaba Project, Main Street Trussville has its fair share of history. Even though Main Street has been undergoing many changes over the years, there is still a lot of history to be found.

2. The Trussville Entertainment District
If you're looking for entertainment, the heart of Trussville has a lot to offer. Over the last few years, a new entertainment district has taken shape. The 12-acre property is located along Main Street and features a stage and pavilion as its focal point. The stage boasts a 27-foot-wide LED screen that can be utilized all year for family movie nights, live sporting events, and concerts and the pavilion area has the capacity for up to 2,500 concert spectators. It also includes a turfed green space, perfect for the little ones.
Aside from the stage and pavilion, there are numerous dinning options from pizza, to smoothies and cookie dough. You can satisfy your hunger at The Three Earred Rabbit, Mexicali Blues, Pinchgut Pies, or Half Shell Oyster House. If you save room for dessert, stop by Cookie Dough Magic for some edible cookie dough or Planet Smoothie for a healthy treat. For the adults, Ferus Artisan Ales and Slag Heap Brewing offer a unique ambience and great beers. Slap Heap often features live music and a food truck as well.
