The museum was truly informative and had a wonderful world war 11 exibit that we enjoyed. A lot of information was given about the history of Fairhope and the people who were part of the history and its making.

The museum reflects the history of this "Single Tax Corporation " town. The WWII exhibition reflects the engagement of its citizens with documents, letters, uniforms, equipment, and weaponry. The museum is unusually good and well maintained for a small town.

Definitely worth the visit if you're in Fairhope or passing through. It is in the old City Hall with one of the original fire trucks, and jail cells that make me glad I'm not a criminal.
The staff (Louie) was very interesting and knowledgeable.
Thankyou for such a great tour.

Fairhope was established by utopians in the late 19th century and attracted artists, thinkers, philosophers and writers from all over the world. While the days of Fairhope as a utopia of commonly owned land and daring social experimentation are, sadly, over, this small but extremely well organized and lovingly maintained museum give us a glimpse of those heady days. The displays are interesting, the atmosphere open and bright, and the story of the dreamers who founded this community, and the innovative thinkers, social reformers and just plain eccentrics that flocked to it, well told in photographs, written accounts and artifacts. Fairhope is more than a collection of boutiques, and this museum reminds us of that fact beautifully. (Note: the full name of this attraction is the Fairhope Museum of History.)
