Just a granite marker on a small patch of land that sits between the roads. If you are already at the Civic center in downtown Dothan then by all means go by and get a picture. Otherwise just skip it.

We specifically went out of our way for this and all it consists of is a small monument in the middle of connecting streets.

I really find it hard to believe this is considered an attraction. Don't go out of your way to see this.

The best things come in small packages. Visit the smallest block with your people and stake your memory today. Life is short, go to Dothan.

My only complaint is that I can't give this national treasure 6 stars! It's truly the Crown Jewel of the Wiregrass. If you haven't been to this attraction, you haven't lived.

This is such an overrated attraction....This "city block" is a small triangle of land which connects two one way streets.....no big deal! It may be good just to stand in the middle of it and make a "selfie" declaring that you a e standing in the middle of the worlds smallest city block....but, I think you could spend your time...

It was called the World's Smallst City Block. The history of its creation was interesting. Did't look like anything very special but there is a small monument with inscription

This is really just a Y in the road, but it does have a marker and since it claims to be the World's Smallest City Block it is fun to stop and take a picture. I wouldn't make a special trip to see it, but if you want to do something inexpensive you could take a tour of Dothan's downtown... More

Guinness Book of Records has placed this as the smallest block in the world. Since our hotel was near by we took the time to locate it since we were in no hurry and was looking around Dothan. It's fun to see how small it is and gave us a good chuckle! It's no big deal so if you are... More
