Confederate Memorial Park to host special guided Museum Tour


 


(Montgomery, AL) Confederate Memorial Park, a
historical property of the Alabama Historical Commission, will host a special
guided tour of the park’s Museum on Saturday, Sept. 25, at 10 a.m. During the
tour, visitors also will see items from the collection not usually on view and
will learn how to care for their personal collections at home. 


 


Spread over 102 acres of rolling wooded countryside near the
center of the state, Confederate Memorial Park incorporates the site of
Alabama’s only Confederate veterans’ home. Life for the old soldiers, called
“inmates” at the Home, was better than most had known before their admission.
The Home provided housing, meals, clothing, allowances, medical care and, for
many, a place to die and be buried with dignity.


The museum offers exhibits on the life of an Alabama Confederate
veteran from recruitment to old age, including hundreds of artifacts from the
Civil War and the Soldiers’ Home. Cost for the guided tour is $10 per person
and is limited to 10 people. To reserve your spot, call the Museum at
205-755-1990.


Confederate Memorial Park is located at 437 Co Rd 63, Marbury,
AL 36051.
