Cahawba was once Alabama's state capital (1819-1826) and a thriving antebellum river town. It became a ghost town shortly after the Civil War. Today it is an important archaeological site and a place of picturesque ruins.

Nature has reclaimed much of Old Cahawba, but historians and archaeologists from the Alabama Historical Commission are working hard to uncover Cahawba's historic past and to create a full time interpretive park.

St Lukes Episcopal ChurchThe Cahawba Advisory Committee needs your help to restore the Historic St. Lukes Episcopal Church Building. This 150 year old structure was designed by Richard Upjohn and has been brought home to Old Cahawba, site of Alabama's first capital.
