Landmark Park - Dothan, Alabama
A very nice historic attraction just an hour's drive from Jackson County (less from some areas) can be found at Dothan's outstanding Landmark Park.
Located on U.S. 431 North (go out past the "Circle" and Northside High School and watch for the signs), Landmark Park is rapidly developing into one of the South's premier outdoor museums. The exhibits include an impressive array of historic structures collected from across the Wiregrass Region. Among these are stores, a one-room school house, a beautifully restored church and more. In addition, the park is home to an outstanding living history farm, built around the Waddell House that was for many years a Dothan landmark. The farm operates year round and includes an impressive assembly of buildings and crops, as well as livestock and more.
Other attractions at the park, which has been designated Alabama's Official Museum of Agriculture, include a planetarium, boardwalks, nature trails, activity barn and more.
