Scottsboro Jackson Heritage Center
- General info
- The Heritage Center, opened in 1985, is both a historical and a cultural museum dedicated to representing the rich history, customs, traditions and art of Jackson County. The museum is composed of three separate exhibit areas: The ante-bellum "Brown-Proctor House," the pioneer village named "Sagetown," and the "Little Courthouse." A complete tour begins by taking visitors back in time over 12,000 years to the period when Native Americans first entered Jackson County. Visitors are able to view artifacts from this period. Visitors learn the technological and cultural advances that brought the Native Americans from the Paelo and Archaic periods through the Woodland period and finally to the Mississippian Period. Visitors then learn about various tribes that were in the area when the first explorers arrived and, later, when the first settlers arrived.
