Growing Up in Anniston

Hundreds of Anniston residents gathered at the Anniston Library to be a part of the ‘Growing Up in Anniston’ story telling. Bill Acker was born and raised in Anniston during the 1940’s through the 60’s which was known as the Model City during that time.

Acker has pictures along with personal stories he’s kept in remembrance of those times and shares them throughout the state. Acker shares why he believes Anniston is such a unique place.

Last year, Acker shared his experiences growing up in Anniston with the Calhoun County Historical Society that is available to view all over the internet. Acker also says that there is no place like home and has no future plans on moving away from the City of Anniston.
