Old town of Alabama is a collection of restored 19th and 20th century structures reflecting the lives of the people who settled and developed central Alabama. It stretches along six blocks in the heart of historic downtown Montgomery, Alabama, depicting a cross section of the architecture, history and lifestyles of an elegant townhouse to life pioneer rural.

Old Alabama Town was developed and is administered by the Montgomery Monuments Foundation, a non-profit corporation established in 1967. Since the purchase of the 1850s Ordeman Townhouse and its outbuildings in 1968, Monuments has acquired and restored more than 50 buildings on the site.

The Lucas Tavern serves as an information and visitor center and was once located in Waugh along the Federal Highway.[1] General Lafayette spent the night at the tavern on his way to Montgomery.[2]

Ordeman Townhouse

The Ordeman Townhouse was one of the first buildings to be restored in Old Town Alabama.
