The Stone Gateway Project will identify our historic community with entrances reading: “Cahaba Homestead Village – U.S. Resettlement Administration – Est. 1936-1938.”

The sandstone entrance designs are based on the original sandstone entrance at the Parkway Drive and Highway 11 intersection. The three proposed locations include:

  • Chalkville Road/Poplar Street intersection
  • Poplar Street/Parkway Drive intersection
  • Green park along Chalkville Road between Hewitt Street and Magnolia Court
