Information on:

Fort Payne Depot Museum

105 5th Street NorthEast

The mission of the Fort Payne Depot Museum is summarized as: to collect, preserve and, through exhibits, educate the public about the history of the DeKalb County area. The museum staff and the Board of Directors understand the mission of the Museum, and there does not appear to be pressure to expand the scope of the collections to areas outside of the stated mission.

The collections do, for the most part, support the mission. The collections fall into three broad categories: local history artifacts, including the railroad caboose, Native American artifacts, and special-interest collections

Been trying for 2 years to go here. Finally and it was worth the wait. Loved it and really loved the annex. Fort Payne citizens sure have done a lot to protect their history.... Would recommend this to everyone...
