“Ellicott’s Stone, also known as the Ellicott Stone, is a boundary marker in northern Mobile County, Alabama. It was placed on April 10, 1799 by a joint U.S.-Spanish survey party headed by Andrew Ellicott.[3][4] It was designated as a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1968 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 11, 1973.”
——–We will park at the road and walk a short distance through the woods and over railroad tracks to where the stone still stands in the woods, surrounded by a gate.

“Old St. Stephens: St. Stephens Historical Park is a state park designated to preserve the history of the Territorial Capital of Alabama. In the heyday of Old St. Stephens, from 1810-1830, it was a bustling riverfront town with a tremendous social and economic impact on the developing state. By the time of the Civil War, the town site had been abandoned, and it remained virtually untouched until archaeological interests stirred in the 1980s.
Indian Baths: Two basins carved in the rocks and filled from flowing underground springs have been called “The Indian Bathtubs” for many years. Recent investigation suggests that the basins weren’t created by Native American tools, but rather by European tools”
——-We will have lunch at St Stephens Park at picnic tables and then we will tour the area. Some of the markers and things are a little off trail and having good walking shoes will be important!
