We have been to the lovely little town of Fairhope several times, but had never visited the Marietta Johnson Museum. We didn't know what we were missing! This little FREE museum is on the campus of Faulkner State College right in the middle of town... An easy walk from any shopping you are doing. The hours are limited, 2-4 pm... More

Housed in the original building of the school, this little museum has an excellent collection of artifacts from earlier times and reflects the philosophy of The School of Organic Education founded by Marietta Johnson in 1907 which continues today in a new building.

They provide evidence of the various activities in which the school's students engaged. Maggie helped us appreciate the underlying philosophy of the school's founder, Marietta Johnson. One of this woman's beliefs included focusing on individual learner's needs. She was... More

A small town in southern Alabama seems like an unlikely spot for one of the Progressive Education movement's shining experiments, but then Fairhope is unlike any community in the South, founded by idealists and dreamers back in 1894. Here in 1907, Marietta Johnson founded her School of Organic Education, which she operated successfully until her death in 1938. While the... More
