World’s Smallest City Block (Dothan, Alabama)

World's Smallest City Block

Not one to be outdone by Portland, Oregon and their tiny Mill Ends Park that claims the title of the world’s smallest park, the town of Dothan, Alabama has its own world’s smallest record.  Dothan is not known as the summer getaway for the rich and famous but they can lay claim the world’s smallest city block.  Complete with a monument noting its status as the world’s smallest, this might in other cities simple be considered a gravel filled median to separate traffic in the city center.

The tiny block is packed with loads of things to see however.  There is a stop sign, a street sign, a marker that looks rather like a tombstone, and the pièce de résistance, a yield sign.  You must certainly be asking yourself if there is really a yield sign, and we can let you know that the rumors are true, there is indeed.
