Kingdom Hunts

Kingdom Hunts are organized for a two-day stay at Cornwallis 1828, located in the historic Alabama Black Belt region. These hunts are designed for one child and one parent, providing an exclusive experience for two full days. Known for trophy whitetail deer, turkey, and hogs, Cornwallis 1828 charges $3,000 for the hunt. Donations are welcomed to help cover the total or partial cost of a hunt for a critically ill child to enjoy the great outdoors. Checks should be made payable to Cornwallis 1828 with a note for “Kingdom Hunt.” They are in the process of obtaining 501(c)(3) status to make donations tax-deductible and will send a receipt for donations at the end of the year.


The program areas at Cornwallis 1828 include:

    • School field trips to the working 1828 homestead, nature trails, fishing, bee yard, and fossils.
    • Event hosting for both public and private functions.
    • Fishing packages offering catch-and-release day trips.
    • Hunting opportunities for deer, turkey, and hogs.
    • The Kingdom Hunt, referenced with Matthew 19:14, provides two hunts a year free of charge for critically ill children.

Cornwallis 1828 is the homestead of Peter Newport Braggs, a Revolutionary soldier who settled in what is now Braggs, Alabama, in Lowndes County in 1828. The purpose of Cornwallis 1828 is to offer school field trips where children can immerse themselves in the great outdoors through all their senses. It stands as a unique combination of historic preservation and education, covering areas such as preservation education, habitat conservation, ecological and environmental education, commercial hunting and fishing, and nature-based agritourism.
