Demopolis: Public Square

One of the oldest public squares in Alabama is the Demopolis Public Square that was established in 1819. The focal point of the park – which takes up a city block – is a large cast iron fountain installed in 1895. A pavilion built in 1886 provides visitors with shade and protection from inclement weather. Two other historic buildings are in the square: Rooster Hall that was originally built as a Presbyterian church in 1843 and the old City hall building, parts of which date back to 1820.
