NOTES FROM THE SHOALS

Your quarterly guide to the happenings in The Shoals.

October, November, December | 2019

Since setting up shop in the former T-Jays manufacturing building (more on the history of The Factory here) on Lane Drive in Florence in 2007, Alabama Chanin has prided itself on being part of, and contributing to, our local community. To foster this fellowship and community involvement, we are introducing Notes from the Shoals. These Journal posts share events and happenings at The Factory and around The Shoals, and highlight the best of our region. Get up, get out, and plan your road trip:
