“History Buff's Palace”

Fort Payne Depot Museum
Ranked #8 of 10 things to do in Fort Payne
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 March 2017

Small museum, but it is packed with the need to know history of the area, with relics, photos and artifacts. The rich history of Dekalb county, Alabama, crosses over with some of the most significant events in American History. Touring this museum will open your eyes to the past, present, and future of the American way. As always peace be with you on your journey, and may discovery be around every corner you take! P.S. Did I mention the amazing Architecture?

As others have mentioned, the architecture of this building is gorgeous. The interior of the building is also beautiful. You won't spend a ton of time in it, but the collection of material is interesting; and I would imagine if you knew the families involved, you would find it even more special. They have a lovely collection of Native American baskets and other items that is diverse in its geographical span. The staff was lovely and welcoming.

Awesome Photo Background! You will find this image in a lot of local business photos--especially real estate companies.

A wonderful example of excellent architecture and craftsmanship from the early railroad days. The detail and preservation of this building rivals anything I have seen in the United States.
