Maritime-Related National Parks in Alabama


Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area

  • The Tennessee River brought the early Native Americans and then the European settlers. For years, it frustrated those who tried to cross it or tame it. Men fought from its banks and others found power from its waters. It created a culture. It shaped a region. The region's sites, buildings, and relics whisper tales of some of the nation's biggest moments and how the river played a role in each.
