Village One (A planned community built in 1918 in Sheffield, Alabama) This unique community of 85 bungalows, barracks, school, and parks was built as government defense housing in 1918. The streets were laid out in an unusual Liberty Bell design. The houses feature red tile roofs and stucco exteriors. This is an example of an early 20th century planned community and an excellent example of early prefabrication and standardization in housing construction. Residents enjoy a quaint lifestyle in what is now known as “The Village.” National Register Historic District.
