CLEBURNE COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

If you travel some of the backroads across our state you'll likely pass through a few towns which make you wonder: where did that name come from?

In Cleburne County, Fred Hunter discovered it's the fruit in one town's past which gives Fruithurst its name. And that has the makings of a story which is Absolutely Alabama.
