     Pine Apple Promotions welcomes you to our town and hopes you enjoy our Front Porch Hospitality.  We invite you to "sit a spell and visit" in old-fashioned Southern Style!  Many of the  homes on the tour are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Tour sites include an 1852 historic barn and log cabins, the 1927 library, a blacksmith shop, the 1902 bank building, four cemeteries and two churches.     
       The Town of Pine Apple was founded in 1825.  Historic housing dates from 1850's to 1950 containing many fine examples of homes from 1870 through the early 1900's, a particularly valuable period when not many structures were built elsewhere in the Black Belt region of Alabama.  The Pine Apple Historic District is on the National Register of Historic Places.  House styles in Pine Apple include antebellum planter style, central passage houses, coastal/creole cottage types, one story T and L plan cottages, high style Queen Anne, Colonial, Revival and Craftsman.  
       While touring this year be sure to visit the newly built art studio located behind the Bennett's house and to take the drive to the community of Awin to tour the Pugh's recently restored log cabin.  Also don't miss the Harmon's newly restored home "Moss Hill" featured for the first time and well worth the short drive.  
      Picnic concessions, hamburgers and hotdogs with all the trimmings, will be available at the Pine Apple Promotions headquarters on Highway 10from 11am to 2pm.  All sites on tour are marked with pineapple signs in the front.  The open parlors are so designated.  Refreshments are served on several porches.  Restroom facilities are available at Pine Apple at Moore Academy, in town at the Library/Fire Department, and at the churches.
