Alabama Veterans Muse

Named Attraction of the Year in 2009 by the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association, the Alabama Veterans Museum and Archives is a great place to get a taste of military history, especially as it relates the area. Since its opening in 2000, this museum has been dedicated to showing the sacrifices and accomplishments of the service people involved in military action since the Civil War. It takes pride in focusing on the people on the front line, rather than just glorifying their leaders. The museum also participates in community activities, including honoring lost service men and retiring flags properly in ceremony.
