Just a short walk from the Rosa Parks Museum and Library you can see this marker on the street. It's just hard to imagine what actually happened right on this very spot all those years ago.

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.

Visited the Rosa Parks museum and this is an extension of the history of this wonderful city. To actually stand where such important history took place is phenomenal!

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!

It was interesting to be standing on the very spot of this historical event that took place during the Civil Rights era.
