The Rosa Parks Arrest Site is essentially a marker where the arrest event took place, but there is nothing to see. The marker has a plaque on it to commemorate the event. The Rosa Parks Museum just up the road, however, is an excellent museum.
Although there is not a lot to see here, for those interested in following the path of those involved in the civil rights events, it is a place that must be seen,
We went on a trolley ride and our driver was so kind. He went beyond his job to tell us about the history of Montgomery while he was driving his route. It was very surreal to actually see some of these places that you hear about in the history books.
What an experience to be standing in the footsteps of Rosa Parks. There is signage for visitors to read and mark the significance of the location. Next, be sure to visit the Rosa Parks Museum!
Rosa Parks refusal to remove herself on the all white bus was the beginning of the civil rights action. Rosa's arrest at this site was the stop that it all started. So glad it's been recognized as a historic attraction. Well worth the visit!
This was nice to see as part of the history. The site is located right in front of the museum and when we were inside the volunteer docent even told us that right down the road about 2-3 blocks was another sign at the site of where the bus picked up Ms. Parks.
It could easily be missed by walking by, but a plaque marks the spot where Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat. It was moving to think that years earlier she fought so peacefully for what she knew was right. It's a nice spot to hit just for the history of the spot.
