Visitors came from Florala, Enterprise, Ozark, Dothan, and Daleville which indicated that the museum was a destination, Tatom said. For those travelling to and from the beach, the Pioneer Museum was a worthwhile diversion.“We have visitors from Birmingham and Haleyville in Alabama and also from Georgia, Louisiana, Arizona and Wisconsin,” Tatom said. “It was encouraging to have visitors from both the local area and those who were traveling through. The new billboards along Highway 213 are really helping get the word out to travelers.”The comments from those who visited the museum were all positive and greatly appreciated, Tatom said.

Hopefully, as things continue to open up and people are traveling more, the Pioneer Museum of Alabama will have a busy summer.” By Jaine Treadwell Pioneer Museum reopens, encouraged by responselast_img
