Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail

Located at the hilltop overlooking Downtown
Montgomery, Five Points is an intersection of history
and humanity. Here the historic black communities of
West Montgomery meet the Cottage Hill neighborhood
featuring Montgomery's most preserved Victorian
architecture and history.

Following the Civil War, this neighborhood evolved
from large mansion homes to more simplified,
framed homes inhabited by railway workers, grocers
carpenters and laborers. The character of the Five
Points neighborhood has also evolved from a privileged
homogenous area into a diverse community that
combines middle class families, professionals, and an
artistic, eccentric segment. This convergence of races
cultures, backgrounds, and interests lends Five Points
a character unlike other areas of Montgomery.
