Fendall Hall is one of Alabama’s outstanding Italianate houses and contains elaborate and rare interior decorative painting dating from the 1880s.
Completed in 1860 by Edward and Anna Young, it was home to five generations of the Young family. It was purchased by the Alabama Historical Commission (AHC) in 1973 for preservation as a house museum, and it is now open to the public. It is restored and interpreted to the 1880-1916 occupancy of the home.

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.

Restored to its 1930s appearance, our courtroom is the model for Harper Lee’s fictional courtroom settings in To Kill a Mockingbird. It’s now one of the most recognized courtrooms in America because of the popular film version of the book. Although the movie was not filmed here, the set designer came to Monroeville to measure, photograph and draw the courtroom before recreating it on a Hollywood sound stage.

The Heritage Association was born out of a sense of collective guilt some time after the Daniel Pratt mansion was leveled. After more than a decade of regret at having lost forever one of our most treasured of historic homes, the Prattville Study Club, then a group of 50 women, initiated the establishment of a county historical society.
