The Choctaw County Historical Museum is located beside the Town Park at downtown Gilbertown, AL. The main building of the museum contains all types of displays that illustrate how life was in earlier times. Behind the main museum is another building that contains the larger items including old farming equipment. There is also an old country store that was relocated to the museum site and a small log cabin that was constructed with logs from Choctaw County’s first courthouse at Barrytown. Next door to the museum is the Town Park which has an old caboose and oil rig.
The Museum is open on Wednesdays from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM and on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. (photos and text courtesy Rural Southwest Alabama)
