  • The Fairhope Museum of History is a very highly recommended, "Must Visit," place on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay! There is such a wealth of amazing history of the City of Fairhope, from its beginnings. The Director, Donnie Barrett, is a lifelong resident of Fairhope. In fact, he and his twin brother, Ronnie, were born across the street where the Hampton Inn is located. Back in the 1950s the location housed the historic Jordan Clinic, where hundreds of babies were born, prior to the establishment of Thomas Hospital. I was also born at the Jordan Clinic, March 31, 1957. So, that location is very special to many of the natives of Fairhope.
  • Beautiful place, amazing people! I loved it.
  • Great quaint museum of fairhope
  • A remarkable little museum with interesting and educational exhibits about Fairhope and the area. My wife and I joined a group of Boy Scouts for a tour of the museum conducted by the museum director himself, a man who obviously loves Fairhope and its history. Hint for a fun 10 minutes: ask the director to show you how to make an arrow the correct, Native American way.
  • Love this place.
