I is for Iron
As we drove through Alabama on our trek home we chose to stay at Tannehill Ironworks State Park. What a find! The park has 195 camping sites and trails throughout. There are a number of restored rustic log cabins, residences from the 1800's, that have been moved to the park. Some are used as rentals, others are used for craft days.
The park is on the site of the Tannehill Ironworks, the birthplace of iron and steel manufacturing in this area of our country.
Restored stone furnace
There is a superb museum on site that tells more about the ironworks and the history of iron and steel production in Alabama. It includes many wonderful artifacts from the 19th century iron industry in Alabama.
We would love to come back here again and explore some more!
