The Marengo County History and Archives Museum Foundation, Inc., was established from a need for a Museum and Archives in Marengo County that will tell of the history, culture and the people of Marengo County and their contributions to society, including, but not limited to, the Native American, French, African-American, Jewish, and European communities. The Foundation will accomplish this need by creating and establishing a public museum and archives at the Rosenbush Building in Historic Downtown Demopolis. Service will be provided to any and all persons expressing an interest in the preservation and promotion of Marengo County and its history. The Foundation will work with various other groups such as The Marengo County Historical Society, Demopolis Public Library, Family History Center of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, the Alabama Department of Archives and History, and other museums and/or groups and societies as deemed necessary. MCHAM plans to support all people in Marengo County who are interested in doing genealogical research by providing classes and workshops that provide training and materials for research. In addition, we plan to support local school systems, 4-H Clubs, and other youth organizations by allowing museum access to students in the area for field trips, and by providing local historical data both in the schools and in the museum. The Archives and Museum will provide an attractive and secure environment for local citizens to educate themselves on county history.
