Although it is focused on the local history, it is representative of the times and activities depicted in a broader sense. Quite well designed, captivating and educational throughout both floors, accented by an intriguing fountain outside.

Anyone looking into the history of Fairhope, needs to visit this museum. They have artwork, pictures, unusual woodcarvings and very staff to answer your questions. It's free, but they do accept donations.

The Museum offers quite an extensive history of the area and is quite pleasant to visit. Don't visit Fairhope without taking time to hear its history.

There are several volunteers at the museum, very knowledgeable & ready to answer questions. My grandchildren were excited to see the old fire engine & jail . Even the outside has interesting features. We really enjoyed the whole museum.

We happened upon this museum by chance and were immediately captured by the history of this interesting town. If you get a chance, it is worth a look just to learn about the unique history of this town - it was founded as a "Utopian"...More
