I've been to Fairhope numerous times, but this visit allowed me to experience and understand 'why' Fairhope. Don't miss the video. With the 30 minute video, it's a great 1 to 1.5 hours. Really well done.

A very nice historical overview of Fairhope! This is a very well done museum and thought it's not big, it gives you a ton of history on how Fairhope came to be.
