Confederate Memorial Park's visitors' center and museum has resumed normal operating hours at reduced capacity. Please continue to observe social distancing and other safety guidelines while on site. 

Confederate Memorial Park is the site of Alabama's only Confederate Soldiers' Home. The site operated from 1902-1939 as a haven for disabled or indigent veterans of the Confederate army, their wives, and widows. The majority of veterans served in Alabama outfits, while others moved to Alabama after the war. The last veteran died at the home in 1934. The facility closed in 1939 when the five remaining widows were moved to Montgomery for better care.

Blue Star Museum: Confederate Memorial Park proudly offers free admission to active duty military personnel and their families between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
