Cullman County Museum
The Cullman County Museum is housed in a replica of Colonel John G. Cullmann’s home. Packed with interesting artifacts spanning two centuries, the campus of the Museum offers items of interest too. From the deck of our sprawling front porch you will see a variety of historical landmarks such as: a towering statue of our founding father, the town gazebo, historic plaques from former city buildings, a restored depot and one of our many city parks.
The Cullman Statue is one of Cullman’s most historical landmarks. In 1873, Colonel Cullmann founded the city of Cullman, Alabama. Later, in 1877, he founded Cullman County. He also established the Alabama Towns of Bangor, Berlin, Bremen, Garden City and Vinemont. Because of his inspirational leadership and humanitarian influence, approximately 20,000 Bavarian and German immigrants settled in this area.
L&N Depot + Park
The restored Pueblo-style building contains displays of vintage railroad items. It is listed on National & State Registers of Historic Places. Constructed in 1913 to replace the original train station, the L&N Railroad serviced this location with freight & passenger service until it was discontinued in the 1960’s. The Depot was used as offices & storage until the city, along with the community, raised funds to restore this once-vibrant station.
Festhalle Farmers Market
Located at the corner of First Avenue and Arnold Street NE in Cullman’s historic Warehouse District, the Festhalle Market Platz is Alabama’s largest timber-frame structure that hosts a variety of activities and events year-round – including the Farmers Market and the annual Oktoberfest celebration, among others. All produce sold at the Festhalle Market Platz farmer’s market is grown by the vendor, who is certified to sell at the Market.
