Very informative history of Fairhope. There's a fire station with a fire truck and a jail in the museum. Saw the coronation of the Satsuma Blossom Queen, Miss Becky.

There is always something new to learn here. Every time I go there is something new. The volunteers are very knowledgeable but also enthusiastic which is a nice bonus.

A great place to visit with grandchildren. My three grandsons had a wonderful time, they did ot want to leave. Unlocking the jail cell was a big hit. Perfect day.

Few small museums can boast of first class displays and very knowledgable host/docents to tell the story of an interesting community like Fairhope. I may get to go again.
