This is a great place to take kids or just to learn about some Alabama history. The oldest standing structure in Alabama resides here as well as a lot of other fun buildings you can explore.

Very informative guides and a well presented site. I was impressed with how everything was so true to real life and easy to follow. The site was clean and very well cared for. I would certainly recommend anyone spending a couple of hours here.

I brought my parents here not knowing what to expect, and I'm glad I took the chance. The guides were very knowledgeable about the area's history and even suggested an eatery after we were through. I'll bring our next visitors here also.

The old houses and items are very nice to see, but I recommend going during the Alabama Book Festival, usually the last Saturday in April, when you can also hear some fantastic authors talking about their books.

We attended the Old Alabama Town book sale. We discovered a huge wooden playground. Lots of climbing areas, slides, a tire swing and baby swings. Several large trees for shade. Benches available for parents.
