Since August 2017, we have added ethnic and racial identities for individuals and families represented in collections. To determine identity, we rely on self-identification; other information supplied to the repository by collection creators or sources; public records, press accounts, and secondary sources; and contextual information in the collection materials. Omissions of ethnic and racial identities in finding aids created or updated after August 2017 are an indication of insufficient information to make an educated guess or an individual's preference for identity information to be excluded from description. When we have misidentified, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.Back to Top

Cahaba was the state capital of Alabama from 1820 until 1826, and the county seat of Dallas County until 1866. Due to its location on the Alabama and Cahaba rivers, the town was subject to seasonal flooding and malaria, yellow fever, and cholera outbreaks. Cahaba was abandoned by the turn of the 20th century.Back to Top
