Hi from William & Terri!
Welcome to our Home in Repton, Alabama. We created this website to bring awareness to the Beautiful, Historical little Railroad Town we call Home!
In 1996, William & I married and I moved from my home town of Kissimmee, Florida to his residence in Repton. William’s family has a long, rich Repton history that dates back to the late 1800’s-early 1900’s.
While William’s childhood was spent between Monroeville, Alabama and the Farm at Repton, riding his pony Whirlaway, mine was spent, literally, inside Walt Disney World, “the happiest place on earth!” I can remember the day the Magic Kingdom opened, I was 6 years old, and the employee’s families were the first to walk through the gates of this Magical Place. And, I can still taste my delicious Birthday Cakes from Sara Lee’s on Main Street inside the Kingdom. I was an adult before I fully appreciated the childhood adventure that shaped my life and my attitude.
When I look at the little ghost town of Repton, I see Beauty! History! And enormous Potential!! When people are pessimistic about this project, I just smile and say “I’m from Disney World, I think anything is possible!”
I am thankful to God for many things, the husband & home he has given me, the fact that YOU are interested enough to read this introduction and especially our tight, caring & strong community! Without them and their support, our restoration attempts for this little town would not be possible.
So in closing, stay tuned and watch us evolve. You can even be a part of this evolution, click on the Repton Restoration Society page. And, please “BE OUR GUEST!” Visit us anytime on the web, email us or better yet, come in person to fully appreciate the Repton Experience!
