#8 of 11 in Historic Sites in Montgomery
Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Old Alabama Town is a collection of restored 19th- and 20th-century structures reflecting the lives of the people who settled and developed central Alabama. It stretches along six blocks in the heart of historic downtown Montgomery, Alabama, depicting a cross-section of architecture, history, and lifestyles from an elegant townhouse to rural pioneer living.

Old Alabama Town was developed and is administered by the Landmarks Foundation of Montgomery, a non-profit corporation that came into being in 1967. Since the purchase of the 1850s Ordeman Townhouse and its dependencies in 1968, Landmarks has acquired and restored more than 50 buildings on the site.

The Lucas Tavern serves as the visitor and information center and was formerly located in Waugh along the Federal Road. General Lafayette stayed the night at the tavern on his way to Montgomery.

  • Great little park and play area for children and toddlers. Playground is located in a large grassy area right at Old Town. The houses are beautiful and will take you back to years gone by. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
  • What a hidden jewel! Had so much fun walking by the Boardwalk. Dined at great restaurant by the water! Recommend!
