The Ridge Macon County Archaeology Project Interpretive Center
The nation’s first western frontier includes the rural southeastern Macon County Alabama Boromville, Creek Stand and Warrior Stand communities that are situated along the path of the historic Federal Road. The Federal Road began as pre-historic Native American footpath along a ridge line. Our name comes from this topography. The Federal Road evolved into the main traveler’s route into present-day Alabama in the early 1800’s. Each wave of Native Americans, European Americans and African Americans inhabiting or passing through left behind artifacts, records, and oral history. Our Interpretive Center houses permanent and rotating exhibits of this tri-cultural history.
