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.

Wonderful place to spend the weekend. It was fun for all ages (4- 64)! Part of our group stayed in the primitive cabins. They're really great because you get the feeling of true camping but you do get relief from mosquitoes and the perpetual heat with air conditioning. The whole area is generally quiet. Great bike trails for the experienced and the novice riders. The rest of the group stayed in the Post Office Cabin. It was spacious and gave us a great "base camp" location for family meals and clean showers.

Great place to relax and camp out to enjoy wildlife and rich history. They have a bunch of activities for young and old from hiking to trade days where you can find anything you need or didn't know you did...The staff there are awesome and very friendly as well as helpful. What a beautiful place to camp

I have been here plenty of times, but never with my camera. I really enjoyed the rustic vibe and gloomy day. We have gotten a lot of rain lately and made for great water photos! One of my favorite times to go is for their Trade Days.. where they have booths, food, shopping, etc.

Neat little state park including a campground and remnants from an old historic town, furnace, and mill are all sights to see throughout the park.
