Old Alabama with a Capital T

Montgomery, Alabama currently serves as the state capital of the state of Alabama, but prior to that four other places held the title.  St; Stephens, Huntsville, Cahabaw, and Tuscaloosa,  all were the location of the Alabama state capital until 1846 where it was permanently moved to Montgomery.

Today the remains of the old state house can be found in Capitol park in Tuscaloosa.  After Tuscaloosa ceased to be the captiol city, the building was used by the Alabama Central Female College.  The building burned in 1923, but the remains are still there and can be “toured”

One might expect to find the ghosts of the old law makers hanging around, but the day I was there all I found was one loan little red fox.
