This is a must see

To stand where slaves were sold, civil rights marches occurred and history was made is a great way to feel a part of American history.

This is a beautiful Gothic fountain, but there's not much going on. Traffic whizzes by, but there's crosswalks so you're safe as a pedestrian, no worries. Check it out if you have a chance.

My wife and I were visiting from out of town, and decided to set out on foot from the hotel. We came across so many cool and interesting things on our walk. Court Square was no exception. We enjoyed looking at the fountain and reading about the various monuments and plaques in the square. We took lots of photos and... More

This beautiful fountain is around half mile from capitol building. If you are in near to capitol building it is worth to visit. This is having excellent brass details. We like it.

The vintage fountain was a watering hole for horses before and during hte Civil War; a wonderful brass fountain now occupies the site with a great view up Dexter Avenue of the State Capitol.

The main change was reverting back to a true circle around the round fountan, so there is really no "square" at all. In the cobblestones on the north side (toward Commerce Street) there are two pieces of railroad track that had been paved over... More

After visiting some of the museums in town, I learned that at this square slaves were sold. As an African American I found this to be moving. Visit and pay tribute.

To stand in the location in which slaves were sold, Rosa Parks broaded a bus, and the city's heart of commerce was absolutely amazing. You can actually see the state's Capitol building, the Greyhound bus station in which the Freedom Riders came in on, the Riverwalk were slaves came in on was absolutely amazing. All this and more happened in... More
