History is alive and well at Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson Park where Native Americans, French soldiers and settlers, American soldiers and settlers, and modern archaeologists have all left their marks. Frequent living history programs showcase a 1751 French Colonial Fort Toulouse, recreated Creek Indian houses, and the partially restored 1814 American Fort Jackson. A 1,000-year-old Indian mound overlooks Indian villages dating as far back as 2,000 years. Many artifacts excavated from this village are on display at the Alabama Archives and History. The William Bartram Nature Trail and the early 19th-century Graves House Visitor Center weave even more strands into this colorful tapestry of one of Alabama's most unique archaeological sites.
