Old Cahawba “If Bugs Could Talk” Walking Tour

(Orrville, AL) Saturday, May 14, at 10 am, Old Cahawba Archaeological Park, a historic property of the Alabama Historical Commission, will host a walking tour called “If Bugs Could Talk”.  "This will be a fun and informative hands-on activity for science lovers and history buffs alike,” said Carmen Yelle, Staff Member at Old Cahawba Archaeological Park. “You will discover how macroinvertebrates can be indicators of water quality while learning about the history of artesian wells at Cahawba."

The first permanent state capital of Alabama, Cahawba was also known as "the city of artesian wells." In the early history of Alabama, water from natural springs was readily available throughout most of the state, except in the blackbelt prairie. However, by 1830, the settlers realized that water could be obtained from deep-bored artesian wells. By the 1850s, Cahawba had more than 20 artesian wells, which allowed the area to develop into the wealthiest part of the state.

Tickets are $8 and are available at the Old Cahawba Visitor Center or by calling 334-872-8058. The tour is allotted for a maximum of 15 participants to accommodate social distancing. Interested parties are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.


Old Cahawba is a historic property of the Alabama Historical Commission. To learn more about Old Cahawba, or the Alabama Historical Commission, please visit
