Battelle, Alabama

Battelle is a ghost town in DeKalb County, Alabama, United States. Battelle was once a thriving mining community which was spread in a north – south line along the foot of Lookout Mountain five miles north of Valley Head, Alabama. Today the forest has reclaimed the whole area and not a single building remains to cast the aura of the ghost town. Today scattered brick, piles of rotted lumber, an occasional piece of metal, mark the ruins of Battelle. Here and there a tame rosebush still fights for survival among the weeds and vines and a row of jonquils looks strangely out of place.
