Cahawaba

Orrville, Alabama 36744
Voice: 334-872-8058

Cahawba was once Alabama's state capital (1820-1826) and a thriving antebellum river town. It became a ghost town shortly after the Civil War. Today it is an important archaeological site and a place of picturesque ruins. Nature has reclaimed Old Cahawba, but historians and archaeologists from the Alabama Historical Commission are working to uncover Cahawba's historic past and to create a full-time interpretive park.

Visitors are welcome at Old Cahawba. Enjoy the wildflowers. Take the time to roam the abandoned streets, view the moss-covered ruins, talk with an archaeologist, read the interpretive signs, and contemplate Cahawba's mysterious disappearance.
