The Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area has many stories hidden in the granite outcrops throughout the land. For more than 10,000 years, people have lived here. The area is rich in natural wonders that drew Native American travelers and traders, settlers looking for new land after the Creek succession, freed slaves, and a group of Trappist monks. The people who came here forged interesting tales and the evidence they left behind illustrates the complexity of Native, African-American and Anglo communities.
