Overview
More
In 1964, Confederate Memorial Park was established in Chilton County on the site of the state-run Confederate Soldiers' Home, which operated from 1902 to 1939 as the state's only care facility and residence for aging veterans of the Confederate Army, their wives, and widows. The park is home to the site of the original facility and other historic structures, as well as a museum, a research facility, and two Soldiers' Home cemeteries. The park offers visitors tours and educational programming, a nature trail, and artifacts relating to the Civil War.

We are so glad we took the time to stop, visit the museum and walk the trails. Reading, seeing and learning from the stories of people from the civil war. Stuff you don't find in most history books. Well worth it. After take a drive...More

This museum is about 25 miles from I65 but so worth the trip. Museum is extremely well done - better than some national park museums we've seen. Grounds are peaceful. So glad we found our way here.

This memorial park (established in 1964) is really off the "beaten path". I only knew about it because I happened to pass by on my way to Wetumpka. It is in Mountain Creek, Alabama and is open from 6 am until dusk. Entry to the...More

An amazing glimpse into history. Staff and volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable. The museum appears to be new and the artifacts in show are amazing. Although not much is visible from much of the original buildings, maps and a hike help you recreate the area....More

When though this site could use some upkeep and updating, it still has a great deal of history that shouldn't be forgot about.
