Black Belt Transformations

If you visit the ghost town of Cahawba, you'll find history and geography lessons
 posted near the visitor center. Dallas County is located in the Black Belt region,
 a narrow swath of land across Central Alabama that is named for the color
 of some of its prairie soils. It once was the home of cotton plantations
 but today is known for its catfish and forest industries.
 This and other posters describe the transformations among its people and landscape.
 Old Cahawba Archaelogical Park is open daily from 9-5.
