Our Story

The Hall of Heroes got its start in 2005 when a group of residents led by Mrs. Bobbye Trammell began collecting photos and biographical sketches of Talladega County’s veterans to be displayed in the expansion of the Armstrong/Osborne Public Library. The displays quickly outgrew the space available, and now we sit inside the longtime Wood-Weaver Shoe Building, donated to the town by the late Robert Weaver. Our museum contains unique military photographs, biographies, uniforms, artifacts, and equipment from all branches of our armed forces and from every era.

The museum is steadfast in its commitment that our veterans will never be forgotten, including the 260 military service members from Talladega County who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, from World War I to our present day. And as our Curator, Jimmy Williams says,

“At the Hall of Heroes, every day is Veteran’s Day!”

The Hall of Heroes Museum has been honored in the United States Congressional Record, the Alabama House of Representatives, and by proclamation from Gov. Kay Ivey.  It was also named the “Nonprofit of the Year”  by the local Chamber of Commerce before the doors

first opened in May of 2018.
