Sites to See in the District

Artesian Wells
Prattville, AL

 
Prattville is also known as the "Fountain City," because of numerous artesian wells that once flowed throughout town. The number of wells has diminished over time, but there remain several that are easy to find. Four that are found in the Downtown area include one in the backyard of the Prattaugan Museum where you can drink with a dipper; another is on Doster Road with a shelter that has been constructed over it inviting visitors to "sit a spell" while enjoying the cool clear water; a third well is in Heritage Park and the fourth is in the parking lot of First Baptist Church.

 

 

Creekwalk Garden
West Main St., Prattville, AL

 
Several years ago, one of our historic buildings on West Main Street burned down. The City of Prattville was joined by several individuals and Prattville Downtown Unlimited in turning the empty lot into a beautiful garden, perfect for quiet talks, reflective moments and even picnics! Prattville Downtown Unlimited contributed a bench, fountain and urns to the garden as part of their mission to keep Downtown vibrant. The Creekwalk Garden is ocated on Main Street right next to Fountain City Grill.

The Little Chapel

No one knows the genesis of the Little Chapel, but it was first discovered on an Autaugaville farm belonging to the Wendland family. Thought to be the original Episcopal Church mentioned by Shadrach Mims in his History of Autauga County, it was donated to Old Prattvillage and today serves as a poignant and picturesque reminder of the past.
