Pioneer Life: Early Settlers before John Cullmann

Continuing our journey through the Museum, we leave the Native American Exhibit and enter an exhibit on Pioneer Life. In this area you will find many common possessions from the time of these early settlers including a classic butter churn, a rope bed, and many other interesting items that were common both inside and outside the home in those early days.

European settlers came to this area long before John Cullmann arrived. They too had hopes and dreams for achieving great things in this new land. Brindley, Speegle, and Sandlin were some of these early families. They were usually large and have many descendants still living in Cullman County. In our pioneer room you can see a handmade dress from the Brindley family, a Dutch Doll quilt from the Speegle family and many other items that connect us to these early settlers.
