Bridgeport, Alabama

To find pre-colonial america and to to find pre-historic america, you usually do not have to look far as the details are in every state of the union.  There are some very old history hidden in caves and the writings/artifacts tell us a story long before we could imagine.  

10,000 years of history from 6500 BC to 1650 AD is to be told at this cave.  

Every year there is a Native American Festival in this area and also Park Rangers give demonstrations of pre-historic tools. 

With history like this, it gives a entire different meaning to the term; Old South.
