The Point Fermin Lighthouse is different from most other lighthouses on the California coast. Instead of standing like a lonely pillar, Point Fermin’s light is part of a Victorian-style house. Point Fermin is one of only six lighthouses ever built in this design and one of three still standing (the others are East Brother in the San Francisco Bay and Hereford Light in New Jersey).
Who can forget the terrifying house of horrors from season one of American Horror Story? Surely, anything so outrageously scary can’t be real. Um … guess again.
From the first time I saw the “murder house” on television I had to see not only what it looked like in person, but also what it felt like to stand on the front stoop.
I’m willing to bet that most of you out there have asked yourself, “How can I travel when I don’t have much money?” or, “How can I travel if I have kids?” or maybe your biggest fear isn’t how will you make money on the road, but what would your family and friends think of you if you went on the road?
Chances are these very thoughts have indeed crossed your mind (they cross all of our minds at some point!) and there’s also a chance you haven’t found any answers. As a result, you’ve still yet to take that first step, and start traveling, and as time passes by, you start to wonder if you’ll ever see and experience any other place other than your hometown. Many of you though, live by the “What ifs?” instead of the “Why nots?” Before you know it, ten years goes by and you’re suddenly in your late thirties, wondering, “What the fuck happened?”
The name Apalachee is derived from the Indian Tribe that was part of the Creek Confederation, though there is no evidence that this tribe had ever settled in this area. The Georgia Legislature incorporated the town of Apalachee in 1907. However, this community has roots that are much older. The area around Apalachee was settled prior to 1820 and is considered to be one of the oldest communities in Morgan County.
Just off one of my favorite roads, Hwy 441, you’ll find the old Apalachee School House. The now ghost town was named for the Apalachee River, that flows nearby. The town used to have a depot and a Post Office. The Post Office was closed in the 1950s. Apalachee is now a rural area north of Madison, Georgia.
