PARDON OUR PROGRESS: Please be aware that the Orange Beach History Museum will be closed for a few weeks beginning this Wednesday, Nov. 15 through Dec. 11, 2023 for renovations. The building, which is the community's original schoolhouse built in 1910, will be getting some new siding and other upgrades to help preserve it for future generations to see and experience.
The building that houses the Orange Beach History Museum was originally built in 1910 as a schoolhouse. It has served as a museum since 1995 and was moved to its present location in 1999.
The Orange Beach History Museum houses local artifacts and memorabilia relating to our Native American and fishing heritage. Families of early fishermen have donated supplies and collectibles that make us mindful of the challenges and achievements in the early days of our fishing industry.
