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.

This would be cool place to go if you knew Civil War history and was into this type thing. Not much at a quick glance. I do understand it has historical value.

I pass this place everyday I go to work. It is closed and probably never will reopen. Built in 1848, it is supposedly the sight where the last Confederate Surrender by General Taylor was negotiated. That is in dispute. It occurred in Citronelle Alabama north on US45.

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

Actually went in 2009 and I heard it had closed. This is a wonderful place to see, experience and learn about our Southern heritage and history - especially the Civil War. A real treat for young and old.

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. It is a great history lesson and everyone is very professional. I have also had an opportunity to visit... More

We visited the farm this weekend when we first heard about it closing. The house has been altered in ways that are not accurate to the time. 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
