The decaying ruins of Old Cahawba's historic cemeteries provide an opportunity for a deeper understanding of the richly layered history surrounding the events that occurred at the site of Alabama's first capital. Join us for a one-hour guided tour as we visit the New Cemetery, established in 1851. This tour will explore the personal sagas of many of those who lived here before joining its community of perpetual residents.

Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes.

Fee: $8.00 per person
