Just over 1,300 people live in the small town of Lillian, AL, which is close to the Florida state line. Even though it is smaller than 4 square miles, it has a lengthy history. The Suarez family received land from the Spanish King in 1630, when the village was first founded. In Lillian’s Old Spanish Cemetery, there are graves dating all the way back to the sixteenth century. The area around Lillian also offers a lot of activities for outdoor enthusiasts. The community is close to Johnson Beach, Big Lagoon State Park, and the Tarklin Bayou Preserve State Park.
