Alabama State Agricultural Museum
Adoption of the Alabama State Agricultural Museum
Landmark Park is a 100 acre facility dedicated to preserving the cultural and natural heritage of the wiregrass region of Southeast Alabama. Owned and operated by Dothan Landmarks Foundation, the park features an 1890s living history farm, a one-room schoolhouse, a general store, and a turn-of the-century church. The park also includes elevated boardwalks, nature trails, wildlife exhibits, a planetarium, and a picnic area. In addition, Landmark Park also serves as headquarters for the Alabama Agricultural Museum Board.
Special programs include Spring Farm Day in March; Antique and Collector Car Show in October; Wiregrass Heritage Festival in October; and Victorian Christmas in December.
Landmark Park became the State Agricultural Museum in 1992 by Act no. 92-541.
