Nature has blessed Tannehill. The beautiful tree-lined valley, hillsides rich in ore and swiftly flowing Roupes Creek made this a perfect setting for a successful iron making operation, as the early settlers realized. The same ingredients afford today?s visitors a pleasurable escape from modern life.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.

It is difficult to take in all of Tannehill in one visit. Come again and come often to enjoy the special appeal of each season. Campground accommodations, both primitive and improved, are plentiful. Horseback riding excursions are available at Tannehill Trails.

The third weekend of each month, from March through November, shoppers and swappers come from far and near to Tannehill Trade Days in search of tools, clothing, jewelry, knives, furniture and other treasures. Other events include a Dulcimer festival, Gem and Mineral show, Woodcarvers show, Educational programs for school children, a Labor Day celebration, Halloween festival and Christmas candlelight tour.

Tannehill State Park is located near Alabaster, Bessemer and Birmingham
