Wilcox County: A Natural Place to Visit

Nestled in the heart of the Alabama Black Belt, which is known for its rich black soil, Wilcox County is the natural choice for tourism. Tourists from each state in the Nation and from several foreign countries have come to see what only we have to offer. Nature, history and culture entwine the many sites in the County.

From Civil War to Civil Rights and beyond, Wilcox County has something for you! Plan to stay awhile; lodging in one of our home-owned motels, riverside cabins or campgrounds. The southern cuisine alone is worth the visit. From down home soul food, to bars and grills, and even some ethnic cuisine, there is surely something for everyone.

Creativity and culture are celebrated daily in Wilcox County. Home to Black Belt Treasures Cultural Arts Center, a gallery of acclaimed artworks crafted by over 400 artists from the culturally rich Black Belt region. Step back in time and visit Betty Anderson’s Old Shoe Shoppe Museum; while her collection is an amazing slice of time, her stories and hospitality will be the highlight of your visit.

The historic districts are enriched with antebellum and historic homes, churches and structures.

The Gee’s Bend Ferry makes it much easier for the residents of Gee’s Bend to get to Camden, the county seat. The ferry also allows tourists a thrilling alternative route for getting to Gee’s Bend to explore the world of the nationally acclaimed Gee’s Bend Quilters.
