Cemetery notes and/or description:
Burials date from 1818 to 1847. Cahawba (or Cahaba) served as Alabama's first capital from 1820 until 1825. When the capital moved to Tuscaloosa, many Cahawba residents followed. With riverboats and the emergence of the cotton economy, Cahawba boomed during the mid-1800s. The town had two graveyards, the first one called Cahaba or Old Cahaba, and another opened in 1851 called New Cahaba. The Civil War, floods, and the loss of the railroad caused the town's residents to depart, and by 1900 it had become a ghost town. Today the Alabama Historical Commission is the caretaker for the Old Cahawba Archeological Site.
