Lee County Historical Society Museum was built in 1845, and now houses vintage clothing, quilts, old toys and furniture in addition to a museum exhibit dedicated to Lee County history, it is a museum complex in Loachapoka, Alabama. It features items and other displays that tell of the history of the county. It is commonly confused with the Lee County Courthouse museum, but take note that this one is a museum complex.

The complex is composed of seven historic buildings. The Old Trade Center serves as the main building, housing displays that tell of the history of Lee County and of Loachapoka. The Ruth Purdy Speake Cabin features displays about the frontier days of the state. The Taylor Whatley Building is all about farming, so it housed farming tools, implements, and other items related to agriculture and farming. The Blacksmith Shop is a place where local blacksmiths gather regularly to tell about their crafts. The McLain Building is dedicated to Dr. McLain who practiced medicine in the county. The space is recreated to tell of his story. The Loachapoka Gin Office chronicles the cotton production of the area. And lastly, the Loachapoka Jail which is a reproduction of the original jailhouse.
