Cahawba Archaeological Park
Cahawba was once Alabama's state capital (1820-1826) and a thriving antebellum river town. It became a ghost town shortly after the Civil War. Today, it is an important archaeological site with picturesque ruins. You can explore a landscape of ruins and relics, hike the Clear Creek Nature Trail, stroll through the cemetery, or celebrate at the Old Cahawba Festival on the 2nd Saturday in May.
