This structure collapsed in 1833 and its fallen remains were reportedly heaped into a railroad embankment. Consequently, we have no picture of the Statehouse that was drawn by someone who actually saw the building. Any modern picture you see of this structure is pure conjecture.

We can only hope that archaeologists will uncover important clues to the appearance of Cahawba's Statehouse.
