AUM’s Land: A Brief History

The Montgomery area has a rich human history that began with prehistoric peoples. Our history includes Native American settlements encompassing many different Alabama tribes. Alabama’s modern human history continued with European explorers in the 16th century and later colonial settlements, the plantation era, and slavery.

The end of the Civil War and emancipation led to a significant number of Alabamians working as tenant farmers or sharecroppers, especially in Central Alabama. Our most recent history includes some of the most historic figures and events in the struggle for civil rights—a struggle that continues to this day.
