1. Luverne Historic District
Inscription.  The historic properties within the Luverne Historic District represent seventy years of history from the 1880s to the late 1940s. This district includes the first commercial businesses in downtown and middle to upper middle-class homes. These resources reflect the developments in Luverne as a railway hub in the southern sector of the state, its residential growth, and the effects that the Great Depression had on small towns in Alabama. The Luverne Historic District displays the relationship between society and commerce as houses are in close proximity to commercial and historically industrial areas of Luverne.
