    I am sitting on once was a very busy road, a road that goes back to 1803, a road that winds its way through St. Stephens Historical Park...Alabamas' First Settlement.
    Located in South Alabama in Washington County, the ruralist county in the state, yet it sits only 60 miles North of Mobile.
    The first U.S. Flag to be flown in the state occurred in 1799 here.
    After 1803, the settlement grew to be 3× the size of Mobile.
    In 1818 the first Alabama Legislature met here.
    The following year, in 1819, the territorial capital was moved to Huntsville in the Northeast corner of the state. That same year Alabama became a state. The 200th. Bicentennial was celebrated last year.
    Remnants of homes, a Hotel, etc., are on the grounds and is still a current archeological site with onsite laboratory.
    There is camping, hiking, a swimming beach on the Tombigbee River that touches this once metropolis.
    Due to the extent of the site, I will produce a part two..with a nice Mystery??

    Thank You,
    Thomas.

      Newfld, the Ft. Mims massacre in the same area, is the worst Indian massacre in U.S. history. Approx. 550 people were killed by the Creek Red Sticks .

      Lucas, You are very correct! I did not want to do a part 3 and I won't for the sake of repetition, I did take pics of the old Fort site and the Indian bathtubs. Still can use those today. The Creek War was horrific to say the least. Another time I will take the Indian route here and show off the beaten path markers of Indian skirmishes around here. Thank You Lucas!!,
      Valentino, Allways A Pleasure!! Thank You!!
