About Us :

Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park depicts Alabama life in the mid-19th century with a cotton gin, working gristmill, pioneer farm, and a turn-of-the-century church along with more than 40 other historical buildings. The park also includes hiking trails, a museum and a fishing creek along with a campground and cabins for overnight stays

Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park has more than 1,500 acres in three counties set aside for hiking, camping and outdoor recreation. A miniature railroad chugs through the pines. From spring through fall, the blacksmith, miller and craftsmen demonstrate their trades. Craft shops occupy restored pioneer cabins and artisans chat with visitors from their front porches. Steeped in history, Tannehill feels timeless. The cotton gin, pioneer farm and working gristmill preserve a long-gone way of life. Hiking trails retrace historic roadways. Artifacts of Alabama’s 19th century iron industry displayed in the Iron and Steel Museum put in perspective the massive stone furnaces, Tannehill’s awe-inspiring centerpiece.

Absolutely beautiful park with tons of trails and activities. Has become a little bit of an RV storage facility but it happens I guess. The history here is very interesting and visiting the ironworks or blacksmith shop is worth it. Trade days is super great and worth going to. Most of the shops are in the shade and seems well organized and clean. You can find some great deals. Two bathroom locations that are clean. Not much food to choose from but the lemonade stand is great. Place could have more shaded sitting areas and maybe some smaller activities for kids (playground) but it’s a stretch to find anything wrong with this park. The people who run this park and trade days should be very proud.

Went to Trade Days. Not like it was a couple of years ago. Prices about what you pay in stores. There were a few unique things. People were nice and eager to sell products. It was fun to go to but for me not to buy anything even surprised my Husband. Not putting the place down, as it still a nice place to take the family for an outing. And there were still things that definitely would appeal to children.

Always enjoy our trips to Tannehill. We camped for 2 1/2 weeks in section 1. The Independece celebration on June 30 was fun, but the train did not run that weekend. Weather was good (a few showers but they didn't last long) and a lot of wildlife to see. We are frequent campers and will continue to be.

Historic place and campground..quiet...pretty woods and setting. Civil war ironworks is an amazing structure. Cabins clean and comfortable. Best part at night was no tv no noise no nothing but an owl or two. Stack of firewood available and lots of fresh air. General store has good ice cream and then coffee in morning. Id go back again

Love going to Tannehill. We always go the first weekend in June for the gem & mineral show. I was able to find some labradorite & a few other things this year. The ironworks museum is very interesting and the old civil war era ironworks. Lots of people go there with their campers. The lake and streams are fun for a little fishing. There is also an old mill and some old cabins. For more, check out their website or go visit!
