A restoration of the Antebellum State Capital, carefully executed in every detail, recalls the sometimes prosperous and sometimes turbulent history of the state. Chosen near the navigational head of a great river system, the capital city became the hub of an expanding railroad network linking east and west, north and south in the cotton-rich antebellum slave economy of the “Heart of Dixie.”
One mile west of Red Bluff Cottage, Maxwell Air Force Base had its seed in the Wright brothers’ struggle to get a heavier than air vehicle off the ground, and by pilot training in World War I. It grew, training US and allied pilots in World War II, and today Maxwell is the center of Air Force professional education as the Air University.
The nearby Montgomery Zoo features spacious, natural environments. The Zoo provides hidden barriers that separate fine specimens of predators from the rich variety of their grazing, climbing, and flying potential prey.
Old Alabama Town holds 19th Century Alabama history in a few carefully selected city blocks into which magnificent mansions, a 19th century cotton gin, and typical plantation outbuildings, country churches and modest urban homes and shops tell their stories.
