This is an interpretative museum that’s located beside the Town Park at downtown Gilbertown. The main building of the museum contains artifacts that illustrate life in Choctaw County during earlier times. Behind the main museum is another building that contains the larger items including old farming equipment. There is also an old country store that was relocated to the museum site and a small log cabin that was constructed with logs from Choctaw County’s first courthouse at Barrytown. Next door to the museum is the Town Park which has an old caboose and an old Hunt oil rig that’s similar to the rig at Gilbertown that was the first in Alabama to strike oil.
The Choctaw County Historical Museum is located at downtown Gilbertown at the intersection of Hwy 17 and Melvin Road (GPS coordinates 31.879285, -88.322708).
