White Bluff

White Bluff, also known as Ecor Blanc, is a historic site located along the Tombigbee River not far from the city of Demopolis, Alabama. It is a chalk cliff, roughly one mile long. The upper portions of the cliff stood almost 80 feet (24 m) above the river before the construction of the Demopolis Lock and Dam downriver. It now averages about 30 feet (9.1 m) above the river. White Bluff was first named Ecor Blanc by 18th century French explorers and map makers.

The romantic version of the Vine and Olive Colony is based in American mythology about the frontier and the “can-do” spirit of the pioneers. According to folklore, in 1817 exiled French military aristocrats loyal to the recently-deposed Emperor Napoleon founded the Vine and Olive Colony at the confluence of the Tombigbee and Black Warrior Rivers.
