Tuscumbia Landing

Tuscumbia Landing, located near downtown Sheffield, was Alabama's first site on the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail System. The landing was once part of the Tuscumbia-Courtland-Decatur railway. During the time period of the Indian Removal, the railway was used to transport Native Americans to Tuscumbia Landing, where they would be loaded into boats to travel downstream. Tuscumbia Landing was also the site of Civil War activity.
