Alabama Historical Commission

Since 1973, the month of May has been promoted as #PreservationMonth – a full 31 days to get out and celebrate the historic places that make up the fabric of our lives and our hometowns. Not only are the places worth preserving, but the stories behind them are, too. Everywhere we go, there’s more to discover. Whether the story is found in archives or attics, peeling back the layers of time helps us to understand the past with each passing generation. Recording stories help to provide a rich and lively history of the people who lived and worked there. We can better imagine their hardships, what had to be overcome and the difficult decisions they had to make in the face of adversity.

The Alabama Historical Commission is your State Historic Preservation Office, and it is our duty and passion to protect, preserve, and interpret Alabama's historic places.

Get excited about the history around us, the places, the stories and the people behind them – even the ones that haven’t been discovered yet. Stitching every story together – every single one- creates a richer, more complete picture of our nation.

Share your favorite historic place. Take time to research a museum or a place you’ve always wanted to see.(And tour it when possible!) Investigate a story you heard a grandparent tell or better yet, record it!

Here's to you, our shared stories, and the places that are all so dear to us.

Use #NationalPreservationMonth, #Preservation or #PreservationStories to share on social media.

Albertville Museum will be moving !!!

Downtown Albertville’s Jewel Box property has been sold to the city and will be the new home of the Albertville Museum.
The building cost the city $120,000, according to Albertville Mayor Tracy Honea. He said the city was pleased to get a new facility for the museum since the museum and its board of directors held a special place in his heart.
“We’re really excited that we were able to purchase the Jewel Box and have the potential to bring it back to life and back into use again,” Honea said. “The current plan moving forward is to relocate Albertville Museum to the space. We think it’s a great fit and makes a lot of sense with that particular building’s rich history and the fact that it’s in the center of our historic downtown community.

Maybe I can drop by...came through a few weeks ago! Quaint town packed full of history!!!
My grandparents lived in albertville in 1900. I am trying to find when my great grandfather and his daughter died. His name was John william Pittman Allen and his daughter was pearl. They both died before 1910. His widow and surviving children moved to Mississippi prior to 1910. John william Pittman Allen was born in 1858 in Georgia and pearl was born in 1895 in Alabama. I cannot find any record of their deaths on ancestry.
Any way our museum can ask Regions Bank to donate their clock standing in front of their old building? The clock was moved from it's original location on Main street at one of the old bank locations of Albertville National Bank or State national Bank) I'm not sure how old it is but it was there in the early 50"s when I was a kid .
I have a photo of the 1939-40 Albertville High School Football Team and was wondering if anyone there could help me Identify the people in it? Thanks
