Greendale (WI) heritage visitors Ted and Mary Mainella toured the Cahaba Project on Friday, March 26, 2021, along with members of the Cahaba Homestead Heritage Foundation.
Trussville Mayor Buddy Choat stopped by to greet the visitors, and Trussville Historical Society member Jane Alexander gave a tour of the Heritage Hall Museum.
The Cahaba Homestead Heritage Foundation members showed the Mainellas around the streets of the Cahaba Project and gave a tour of one of the historic homes. Here’s a quick recap video of their visit.
The Mainellas are involved with the Greendale Historical Society. Ted has served as the society’s president and is currently the treasurer. Greendale, like Trussville’s Cahaba Project, was started in 1936 as part of the Resettlement Administration, and completed in 1938. Greendale is a “sister city” to the Cahaba Project. The Mainellas graciously took the time to talk about Greendale and their visit to the Cahaba Project. Watch that interview below.
