Replicas of Christopher Columbus' ships coming to Alabama
The Columbus Foundation

ROGERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Replicas of Christopher Columbus' ships are coming back to northern Alabama.
WAAY-TV reports the Nina and Pinta will open to the public at Joe Wheeler State Park Marina on Thursday.
The two are historically accurate to the real ships. They were in northern Alabama this summer before heading to Tennessee for almost two months.
While in port, you can walk around the ships and take self-guided tours.
