P. O.W. Memorial Service at Old Cahawba
Please join us for this ceremony as we pay our respects to the prisoners of war who lost their lives during the Civil War. The ceremony will feature reenactors in period dress reading authentic letters written by Cahawba’s P.O.W.s
A wreath will be laid upon the grave of the unknown soldier, hymns from that era will be sung, and salutes will be fired. (Free)
Join us every Tuesday to create quilts for children in need! We give you all the tools and knowledge you need to make a beautiful quilt regardless of your skill level. All quilts created are given to the Bloom House to serve the children across our state that need it most. A fun way to give back and learn a new skill, hope you can join us!
