Another must see place.

Although there is not a lot to see here, for those interested in following the path of those involved in the civil rights events, it is a place that must be seen,

We went on a trolley ride and our driver was so kind. He went beyond his job to tell us about the history of Montgomery while he was driving his route. It was very surreal to actually see some of these places that you hear about in the history books.

Blessed to have experienced this with our children. Very humbling to read about and see pictures and places of those who faced the struggles and paved the way for us.

What an experience to be standing in the footsteps of Rosa Parks. There is signage for visitors to read and mark the significance of the location. Next, be sure to visit the Rosa Parks Museum!

There is not much time involved but a visit there completes the entire Rosa Parks experience. It puts things in perspective as to location and distances!

There is a huge sign here on Montgomery St acknowledging the history of this spot. If you are in Montgomery, this is a must stop just to stand here.

Rosa Parks refusal to remove herself on the all white bus was the beginning of the civil rights action. Rosa's arrest at this site was the stop that it all started. So glad it's been recognized as a historic attraction. Well worth the visit!

This was nice to see as part of the history. The site is located right in front of the museum and when we were inside the volunteer docent even told us that right down the road about 2-3 blocks was another sign at the site of where the bus picked up Ms. Parks.
