  • What a neat lil piece of southern history about north Alabama. Mr Palmer, a retired journalist and editor, meet us at the entrance and began a very interesting, detailed history of both the building and the surrounding area. There were many exhibits with placards explaining the significance of each display. There were a few visitors on this very chilly January, Saturday and Mr. Palmer gave each the excellent presentation of the building. There was also an adjacent building with a new display, The Role of Cotton in the South. I recommend this museum if you enjoy Southern history, untainted.
  • Very interesting. I learned a lot, especially from David P. He was very nice and very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our time there. It's a must see!
  • Pope's Tavern is such a gem that is hiding in plain sight. A tremendous amount of history and artifacts around the Civil War, enslaved people, and the south in general. Great for kids to adults.
  • Loved visiting this area and all of the history that involves it. Florence is a sweet looking town, & was a wonder to drive through & experience. Would love to go back to Pope's Tavern.....so much history still to be uncovered here at this place/area.
  • This is a very interesting piece of history. Mr Higgins is full of information about the house and the town. They have a good collection of civil war items and other displays from that time period. Our whole family enjoyed our trip here.
