“Where It All Started”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

A historical marker indicating the bus stop where Rosa refused to give up her seat. Right near the Rosa Parks Museum. Great way to begin the museum experience.

“Interesting bit of history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

As part of a walking tour of the 1960's cicil rights movement, this is one stop along the way that has a great view up Dexter to the Capitol building.

“Wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

The picture posted is not the actual sight (sculpture) it's where she got on the bus (site slightly over). However it was interesting and humbling to stand in the location that she got on the bus and ironically the same area in which slaves were sold and then to look down just a very short distance and see the location in which Mrs. Parks was arrested.
