Great Place and may have plans to reopen.

I sure hope so; This is such an important part of our American heritage. Sites like this really need to be preserved.

Historic Magee Farm/Last Appomattox was one of the BEST Civil War/Southern/Alabama History museums we had ever visited. However it has been sold and the artifacts were auctioned and sold. I spoke to an Antique dealer in Mobile and he was unsure of what happened to all the things that were at the Magee Farm. We were there in February 2011

I took my grandson and my son, we are all civil war buffs, I also enjoyed this farm when the Tubbervills owned it, my mother and I picked blue berries for years and never knew the house was like it is.

The plaster walls have either been torn down and replaced or covered completely with sheetrock which isn't a period appropriate material. Many of the quilts on the beds are not period appropriate to... More

I volunteer at Magee Farms in Kushla,AL. We have something other Civil War homes don't have, we have all of the original furniture, the house has never been rebuilt, and we have the original receipts on the furniture. Every other Civil war home has been rebuilt or refurnished. This house is where General Canby and General Taylor surrendered. An actual... More
