Housed in a 1920's three story general store in downtown Centre, Alabama, the Cherokee County Historical Museum is open to all residents and visitors of any age. A stroll through the museum takes visitors back in time. Approximately 15,000 artifacts and exhibits are on display including wheat threshing, a liquor still, gas pumps from the 1920's, the history of the railroad between 1854-1981.

Interests and Areas of Expertise
I love traveling around America and seeing the beauty and history of our country.
Mentone Inn B & B. The hospitality of this small mountain town is great. The innkeeper is so nice and the inn is within walking distance of the Wildflower Cafe for dinner. Historic Inn only a short drive from two beautiful waterfalls and numerous overlooks. Oh! Not to mention the superb breakfast you will be served.
