Visitors to Old Alabama Town journey down the streets of the 19th century, garnering a perspective on early American lifestyles and architecture. Stretching for six blocks in downtown historic Montgomery, the outdoor history museum features more than 50 authentic 19th- and early 20th-century buildings. Each guest receives a property map to shepherd them through the neighborhood, exploring lavish antebellum mansions, humble log cabins, slave quarters, and vintage video-gaming parlors. Museum-goers can step into the past via the log cabin and pole barn built in the 1820s and the church constructed circa 1888, chat with interpreters in period costume, and fill their brain buckets with historic tidbits on the fully guided tour of the Ordeman House (tours are included in admission price and run Monday through Friday at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 12 p.m., and 1 p.m.).
Old Alabama Town
More than 50 authentically restored structures, from lush antebellum mansions to cozy log cabins, line the six blocks of Old Alabama Town. Relics of the 19th and early 20th centuries, these buildings include one-room schoolhouses where children gathered for lessons, as well as a tavern their parents might have frequented. Ticketed tours permit peeks into some of Montgomery's historic cottages, while visitors on self-guided excursions can interact with costumed interpreters on the village's every block. Guests can even take home history from Rescued Relics, the museum's salvage warehouse full of old-timey architectural pieces, including mantels and doors.
