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.

This building is the original fire station, police station and jail, mayor's office, etc. It is staffed by very knowledgeable volunteers eager to tell you about the history of their town. You can learn about the 'single tax' origins of Fairhope and the industries that supported it, see some amazing wooden sculptures from a local, but nationally recognized artist, and pick up maps and brochures to the many attractions and shops in town.

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.
