September’s answer: The Old Monroe County Courthouse, completed in 1904, gained national fame thanks to Monroeville native Harper Lee and her Pulitzer prize-winning novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird.” The courtroom in the Old Courthouse was used as the model for the one in the trial scene in the movie version of the book. The courthouse has been restored and is a museum with three permanent exhibits; literary fans from around the world come to visit.
