Cemetery Walking Tour at Old Cahawba

Sat. 1 Oct, 2022 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Cemetery Walking Tour at Old Cahawba set for Oct. 1

Contact: Jonathan Matthews, 334-872-8058

(Orrville, AL) Old Cahawba Archaeological Park, a historic site operated by the Alabama Historical Commission, will host a Cemetery Walking Tour on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m.-11 a.m.

The mysterious antiquity of Alabama’s most famous ghost town is apparent in the richly layered histories of its cemeteries. On October 1, at 10 a.m. a guided tour of one of Old Cahawba’s cemeteries, established in 1851, will explore the heartbreak and heartache experienced by Cahawba’s perpetual residents.

This “belles and beaus” themed graveyard tour will introduce residents like Augustus Hatcher Jackson who dreamed of a long life with his young bride before a horrible tragedy cut their marriage short. Other graves like those in William Curtis’ family plot will be visited. Participants will learn about his son-in-law, Rev. James Cotten, a man who had not known true love until he met William’s daughter, Miss Lucy. Papa Curtis reacted badly to both her wedding to Cotten and her untimely death.

Tickets are $8 each and available at the Old Cahawba Visitor Center. The tour is allotted for a maximum of 20 participants. Interested parties are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance of the event. Tickets may be purchased by calling 334-872-8058. Old Cahawba accepts all major credit cards. On the day of the event, participants will meet at the Visitor Center, rain or shine.

Old Cahawba lies at the confluence of the Alabama and Cahaba Rivers, and from 1819 to 1826 it served as Alabama’s first capital. 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 Visitor Center on the right. Visitor Center Address: 9518 Cahaba Road, Orrville, AL 36767.
