The Fort Mims Restoration Association exists to preserve the historic site of Fort Mims, to educate the public about its significant role
in the history of Alabama and our nation, and to commemorate the lives of all those lost 200 years ago in the Alabama wilderness. We hope that
everyone will always "Remember Fort Mims!" The annual commemoration and living history weekend is held the last weekend in August. This event
provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the daily life of early settlers and how their lives intermingled with the Creek Indians during the early 1800's,
long before Alabama became a state.
