I found this place truly fascinating, and I will never forget working around Montgomery. The history cannot help but touch you. Ensure you visit the Civil Rights Museum here, there are a lot around this area but this one is something you cannot miss.

Learning about Alabama's history was great and there are quite a few buildings for you to walk through and see. Old school houses, farm buildings where they store the cotton machines, old homes and kitchens. Alabama's oldest standing structure is displayed here.
