Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson Park is a significant archaeological site. This area, where the Coosa and Tallapoosa meet to form the mighty Alabama River, has been occupied for 10,000 years.

Prehistoric and American Indians, Spanish explorers, French marines, English and Scottish traders, and American settlers all left their mark on this National Historic Landmark. 

Blue Star Museum: Fort Toulouse-Fort Jackson Park proudly offers free admission to active duty military personnel and their families between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Come experience living history events that showcase the recreated 1751 French fort, the recreated Creek Indian houses, and the partially restored 1814 American Fort Jackson. Visitors can also see a 1,000-year-old Indian mound and walk along the William Bartram Nature Trail.
