McCALLA, Ala. (WIAT) — Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park was founded in McCalla back in 1969. Since the 70s, the grounds have been preserved and growing into what we see today – historical sites, camping grounds, cabins, museums, shops, trails. Those are just some of the activities available across the 1,500-acre park.

Tannehill is known for their history at the furnaces and the local sites that helped the Confederate Army during the Civil War. The grounds are also very popular during Halloween and this coming weekend!

This weekend, the park has their trade days event. The museum coordinator says this event is their most popular and helps fund the park for the entire winter. The trade days event is a huge outdoor flea market with different vendors. For more information on Tannehill and the events perfect for families with kids of all ages, click here!
