Buzzard Roost Spring, AL

Buzzard Roost Spring - Originally called Buzzard Sleep, the name was changed to Buzzard Roost in 1801 by Levi Colbert, a renowned Chickasaw chief. The spring was a water source for the Colbert house which also served as an inn and stand for travelers on the Old Natchez Trace. Travelers who stopped here remarked that its a good place for they were well received, well fed and kindly treated. Levi was a brother to George Colbert. They both ran the Colbert Ferry and their stands were about 2 hours apart by horseback. Photo by Kathy Weiser-Alexander.
