Brierfield Ironworks Historical Park
County: Bibb | Attraction Types: Birding Trail, Historic Site, Museum, Outdoor Recreation, Park
Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park is an attractive, open park with a friendly staff. The terrain is primarily open and level, with a small wet-weather stream and a covered bridge not far from the park entrance. There are gently rolling hills toward the rear (north) end of the acreage. The forest is mostly mature hardwoods, with scattered pines on the higher elevations. There are multiple “period” buildings dotting the landscape, and several rustic cabins and a group lodge on the north end of the park. The center of the park is dominated by parking areas and picnic pavilions. In addition to being an outstanding historical park, Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park serves as a popular location on the West Alabama Birding Trail.
The park is dedicated to the Bibb County iron ruins that propelled Alabama into the ranks of one of the top iron producers in the world.
