We recently visited Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park, The Museum was wonderful !!
The History of how this Iron and Steel Furnace supplied all kinds of Products to the Civil War Confederate Army !!!
The Tannehill Ironworks is a state historic site in Tuscaloosa County just outside of Birmingham. Artifacts of Alabama’s 19th-century iron industry are displayed in the Iron and Steel Museum, put in perspective is the massive stone furnaces, Tannehill’s awe-inspiring centerpiece.
listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Tannehill Furnace, it was a major supplier of iron for Confederate Army.
More than 1,500 acres set aside for hiking, camping and outdoor recreation. A miniature railroad chugs through the pines which you can ride. From spring through fall, the blacksmith, miller and craftsmen demonstrate their trades. Craft shops occupy restored pioneer cabins and artisans chat with visitors from their front porches. Steeped in history, Tannehill feels timeless. The cotton gin and working gristmill preserve a long-gone way of life.
If you Love camping this is a nice Park, you can rent Primitive Cabins or just bring your RV !!
