So happy to announce that the Fort Mitchell Historic Site is now open for our regular schedule.
We are open on Fridays from 11 to 5, Saturdays from 10 to 5, and Sundays from 12 to 5. These are Eastern time. There is a new pioneer garden started by a wonderful group of master gardeners! Come and visit this very important historic spot and learn the role it played in Alabama settlement and Statehood. Also, the rich history of the Creek Indian Nation is all around us here.
See you soon!

Upon entrance to Fort Mitchell, check in at the Visitors Center. The Visitors Center houses the museum, theater, and a "walk through time" where lifelike displays depict historical scenes and events of this area and time period. There are artifacts including arrowheads, tools, guns, pottery, and household items. In the theater a film presentation is shown describing events and history that actually happened in the periods between 1813 and 1860.
There are 23 vehicles in the park. Most are located in the Carriage House which contains an assortment of carriages, carts, wagons, and surreys.
