The Aliceville Museum hosted a model building workshop on Saturday, March 1, 2008. Taught by Dr. Tom Baumann the participants learned to assemble a simple model kit. Participants ranged in age from 11 year-olds to those in retirement.The kits were provided free to the museum by several model companies. On completion of the first model, participants will receive a free second model kit. Future workshops are planned for more advanced model building. For more information on future workshops contact the museum at 205-373-2363.
Many options await the growing number of Americans reaching retirement. Most stay in place. Some seek exotic locations. Others like the simple pleasures of rural and small-town life. This page is for those in the third group. We invite you to consider relocating to Pickens County, Alabama. As you explore this site you will find testimonies by those who have made this choice, introductions to some of the places, events, and things that make this a good place to retire, and a hearty invitation to come and take a look.
