Welcome to Alabama’s Black Belt, Where the Culture is as Rich as the Land

The Black Belt of Alabama is one of the last places where you can still experience the true South.

From prehistory, through the antebellum and the War Between the States, to civil rights, the region embodies the South. Today, this beautiful place is home to a burgeoning cultural Renaissance and an emerging natural paradise.

The Black Belt Is...

Full of Wildlife

Swamps teeming with birds.

You can visit the vast swamps of the Tombigbee River at the Choctaw National Wildlife Refuge in Choctaw County. The swamps are full of many animals, especially birds.
