We very much enjoyed our visit. The Docent was charming and very helpful, giving everyone a quick 10 min overview before letting you explore. History of the town is curious in the way the town was organized and settled. An hour well spent.
Don't miss the Craig Sheldon carvings on the 2nd floor.
You can see Sheldon's home with 2 others a few blocks away on Oak St. They are private homes so be respectful!

Well done. Very well prepared historical perspective of Fairhope. So much information and so many images and displays that give life to the history. The fire truck was a gem. I loved the suspended lawmowers. You could spend hours just absorbing Fairhope’s history. The community is to be commended for their museum.

We actually visited at an earlier date than TA will permit me to put, so I did the best to capture the right time of year. Our family enjoyed the museum on a field trip day. It was great to seek the stories of the town and learn about important people and places that helped shape Fairhope. I think one memory we will keep for years was taking turns at cracking the code on the safe. We enjoyed the town, the museum, the food, and the shops.

Regrettably we visited the museum the day before we left town. It should have been our first stop to fully understand the history of Fairhope. The museum was far better than I had expected. Very impressed!

Were unable to visit on Saturday due to Corona cleaning. The welcome center next door was open. We did have friends that visited that prior Thursday and they said it was interesting.

Nice museum. Interesting and well presented. Also free! The ladies there were knowledgeable and very nice. The jail part
made for some fun pics. Bought some stuff at gift shop. Booklet on civil war and Baldwin county was only $5. Worth going to.

A treasure trove of information and artifacts. Six in our group and we all found interesting history of Fairhope. Ralph was a walking talking encyclopedia.
