Monroe County Heritage Museum, Old Monroe County Courthouse

Who we are What we do

The Monroe County Museum maintains and operates five historic sites in Monroe County, Ala., that collectively interpret the areas rich history, ranging from the prehistoric fossil deposits at Claiborne Bluff, Native American culture, pioneer life, politics and the literary legacy of Truman Capote and Harper Lee.

Our mission is to bring people and history together. This mission is founded on two beliefs: First, understanding regional history enriches lives; and second, heritage is best understood and enjoyed through first-hand experience of well-presented programs and exhibits designed to tell the story of our past. The museum staff collect, preserves, studies, interprets and exhibits artifacts, photographs, manuscripts, publications and films.

The museum serves the general public, schoolchildren, local residents, tourists and scholars. The museum cooperates with other historic and educational institutions in the study, interpretation and promotion of local and regional history to contribute to the quality of life in the region.
