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.

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,

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!
