Saturday, October 1

10 am – 12 noon

Old Cahawba Archaeological Park, Orrville (near Selma)

 

Come explore on two-wheels Alabama's most famous ghost town! The fall foliage and mild temperatures make this time of year ideal for discovering Cahawba's historic setting.

Directions: From downtown Selma, take Highway 22 (Dallas Avenue) west 8.6 miles. Cross over the Cahaba River and turn left onto County Road 9 and follow this 3.3 miles until it dead ends. Turn left onto County Road 2 and follow this 1.5 miles until you see the Welcome Center on the right. Welcome Center Address: 9518 Cahaba Road, Orrville, AL 36767.

Fee: $15.00 per person

Old Cahawba lies at the confluence of the Alabama and Cahaba Rivers, and from 1819 to 1826 it served as Alabama’s first capital. Today, the Alabama Historical Commission owns and operates this significant archaeological site.
