|Facility:||Alabama Constitution Village|
|Description:||Hear the whir of the spinning wheel - smell the enticing aroma of freshly baked bread being prepared over an open fire - turn the great wheel lathe in the cabinetmaker's shop - and visit with villagers busy with their daily tasks, seemingly unaware that nearly two centuries have come and gone.
Forty-four delegates of the constitutional convention gathered here in a vacant cabinet shop on July 5, 1819, to organize Alabama as the 22nd state. John Boardman's print shop, Clement Comer Clay's law office, the Federal Land Surveyor's office, a post office and sheriff Stephen Neal's residence surround that cabinet shop. Today, the shade trees watch over a proud living village that captures Alabama's history and spirit. Constitution Village is a unique and unforgettable journey into Alabama's past.
