The unique history of Cullman can be found throughout the county. From the world famous Ave Maria Grotto to the beckoning Clarkson Covered Bridge we have something for every interest. Stop by the Museum before you begin your visit and we will be happy to recommend an itinerary to fit your interest. Want to see what life was like in the 1950’s we recommend the Hanceville Drug Company and their original soda shop for a trip back in time. Do you like art and beautiful things? There is the Burrow Museum on the campus of Wallace State Community College which has a permanent exhibit of fine porcelain and traveling exhibits featuring various art forms.
For some fun and history you can’t beat, a visit to the Crooked Creek Civil War Museum and a chat with Fred Wise. Two venues that fall under the Museum’s umbrella are the Train Depot and the Weiss Cottage.
Weiss Cottage is Cullman’s oldest house. It was built by the railroad in 1873, shortly after the town’s founding, to encourage settlement. The house is open during special events and at other times by appointment. The small, wood-framed home was home to Aldo Weiss and his family, and served as his medical office. The home is listed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage and the National Registry of Historical Places. Call (256) 739-1258 for an appointment.
