Old York USA Heritage & Music Park

This site features more than 20 old buildings including a steakhouse, gift shop and western store. Described by historians as being 'as authentic as you can get', Old York shines with ghost of the Confederacy and the old West. Nestled in the foothills of south Walker County, York was the original site of the town's first Post Office where in 1862, Confederate troops were sworn in. This sportsman's paradise will live forever in Alabama history. The Post Office was located in the rustic white house in the center of the heritage park. For nearly a century and a half, the Corry's have resided on the acreage in and around Old York. In its day, York was a mecca for coal mining activities. Five saloons sprang up with the addition of the railroad - the backbone of our nation. One of such watering hole - the Chamborden Saloon, is recreated, complete with the original bar, liquor cabinets and mirror.
