Experiencing History Phase I & II

Project County: Lee | Project Year: 2016

Preserving history through restoration is part of the Mid-South RC&D Council, Inc. mission and vision. Lee County Historical Society (LCHS) owns and operates the Pioneer Park located in  Loachapoka, Alabama.   A renovated circa 1830 Creek Indian Log Home had been restored and moved to the park. To complete the project for general public access, needs included signage, displays, and handicap ramps. The Society hosts 12 Second Saturday Events, school field trips and a fall festival annually. Completion of the LCHS project enhanced the opportunities for additional access needs, created and expanded exhibits for educational awareness to the customs and lifestyle of the Creek in a historical museum for school age students and general public.
