Gadsden, Alabama Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Gadsden is named for the man who negotiated the purchase of Arizona and New Mexico. As was the case in much of Alabama, Union troops ravaged the town during the Civil War.

Today, Gadsden has a beautiful downtown. Streets boasting rows of trees, benches, colorful awnings, and brick covered walkways invite visitors to explore its lovely specialty shops, cafes, and good eats.

Gadsden is famous for its falls. Noccalula Falls has a curious legend. The story goes that a stunning young Indian girl threw herself over the 100' waterfall to avoid marrying a man she didn't love. An old aboriginal fort, an abandoned dam, and a large botanical garden surround the park.

The Center for Cultural Arts is a great find. A children's museum, a huge variety of art exhibits, concerts, and a miniature city are just a few of the treats visitors will discover. During June of every year, the Gadsden River Fest draws large crowds. Music, children activities, food galore, and nationally known music talent are just some of the amusements featured.

Gadsden is located in the northeastern part of the state, just off Interstate 59, about 60 miles northwest of Birmingham.
