Burritt’s historic park interprets the past by showcasing aspects of farm life from the 19th century, contrasting Alabama Constitution Village’s 19th century urban life. Step back into the lives of southern farmers as you visit historic log structures including the Eddins House ca. 1808, the oldest known man-made dwelling in Alabama. Living history interpreters recreate the diversity of farm life allowing you to become involved through lively conversation, demonstration and hands-on activities. In the Burritt Barnyard, students can get “up close and personal” with animals that would have been used for work, wool and even food for the families.
