Fort Toulouse-Jackson National Historic Park
Visitors will find over 6,000 years of history at Fort Toulouse-Jackson National Historic Park, located just south of Wetumpka where the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers meet to form the headwaters of the Alabama River. One of the area’s best tourist attractions, Fort Toulouse-Jackson National Historic Park is open year round and everyone is invited to enjoy 165 acres of living history and natural beauty. Tour the French and American Forts, or the Mississipian Indian Mound site or just relax and take a walk along the William Bartram Arboretum trail, named for the famed 18th century botanist. Top off your trip with a visit to the Grave’s House where you’ll find a bookstore and museum featuring archaeological collections from French colonial, early American and prehistoric Indian items. The park also hosts a full service 39-site campground overlooking the Coosa River.
