Confederate Memorial Park


Confederate Park is unique in Alabama history. It is the site of Alabamas only Home for Confederate veterans (1902-1939). The park museum interprets the Confederate period and the Alabama Confederate Soldiers Home. Wayside signage and visitor guides enable visitors to take walking or driving tours of the Soldiers Home site. The park nature trail takes visitors through an Alabama Treasure Forest where they will encounter the original hand-dug spring and 86,000 gallon reservoir which provided water for the Soldiers Home. The park is situated on the original 102-acre facility, which includes the site of the original twenty-two buildings and two Soldiers Home cemeteries. The Marbury Methodist Church (c.1885), where a number of Soldiers Home inmates were members, and the Mountain Creek Post Office (c.1900), where most Soldiers Home inmates would visit daily, are also part of the park. Both buildings were moved to the site from their original locations nearby in order to save them. In addition, the park offers a Confederate research library for study of the period as well as a full-scale replica of a Civil War barracks which houses our living history soldiers for scheduled events. The museum artifact displays, interpretive panels and interactive media stations allow visitors to fully comprehend the history of the Alabama Confederate veteran and in particular, the history of the Alabama Confederate Soldiers Home. In conjunction with this, the driving and especially the walking tours allow visitors to experience the site of the Soldiers Home including visiting the graves of Confederate veterans who lived at the Home and whose stories are detailed in the museum. Confederate Memorial Park is a historic property of the Alabama Historical Commission - http://ahc.alabama.gov/
