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.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Out of an abundance of caution for all involved, we regret to announce the cancellation of the 25th annual Frontier Days, scheduled November 4-7 2020. The safety of our living historians, staff, and guests is of utmost importance to us during the ongoing threat of the coronavirus and COVID-19. Thank you for the many years of support. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
