Bellefonte

Bellefonte is a ghost town in Jackson County, Alabama near the site of the Bellefonte Nuclear Generating Station. It is located roughly two miles southeast of Hollywood, Alabama.

Bellefonte was settled in the early 19th century and incorporated on December 15, 1821, when it had nearly 200 residents. Its name was a subjective description consisting of the French words "belle", meaning "beautiful," and "fonte", meaning "fount." It was the Jackson County seat from 1821 to 1859. During the following decade, a post office, courthouse, and church were constructed. A post office was established in 1830. By 1844, the population had grown to 400. The town suffered severe damage during the Civil War. The post office was closed in 1859, and the entire town was abandoned by the 1920s. All that remains of Bellefonte today are the cemetery, the chimney of the local inn, and piles of scattered bricks.

Fern Cave National Wildlife Refuge

Fern Cave National Wildlife Refuge is a 199-acre National Wildlife Refuge located in northeastern Alabama, near Paint Rock, Alabama in Jackson County. More than 1,200 visitors per year visit the refuge.

There is no visitor center for this refuge. Fern Cave National Wildlife Refuge is located on the western slope of Nat Mountain. If you are coming from Huntsville, take US Highway 72 East to Gurley.
