Historic Sites

Montgomery and the surrounding River Region are home to a wide variety of historic sites. Here in Alabama’s capital city you can stand on grounds once home to Creek Indians then retrace the steps of the French territory, American expansion and the formation of the state. 

Center stage for both the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement, Montgomery sites stand as monuments and lessons of painful and proud moments alike. The birthplace of the Confederacy is the same place where slaves were traded and where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr preached his message of equality and justice.
