In addition, the Museum also includes a historical representation of a small downtown area in the early 1900s. This area includes a typical one-room schoolhouse, a general store, and a church building. These areas allow visitors to have a more full understanding of the lives of Alabama residents in the area.
As a national park, this area also includes several natural hikes and trails. These trails are available year round. The rural location is typical for the type of farmhouse and small town that are shown in the museum. The park offers several yearly special events that preserve history from the early 1900s through today.
