Heritage Park

Heritage park was founded to preserve the early historic landmarks of the City of Semmes.

Semmes: A Community Rich in History

The Semmes one-room schoolhouse built in 1902, is the oldest continuous-in-use school in the State of Alabama and is listed on the Alabama Historical Landmarks list. It was given this designation on August 25, 1994. It is located on land that was donated for a school and a church by Thomas Jefferson Howell. Mr. Howell donated the land based on the stipulation that the land would be used for a schoolhouse only or it would revert back to the Howell family. The schoolhouse was moved across the road in 1917, next to the new Semmes School. In 1994, a group of volunteers, former students, teachers, and community citizens formed “Alumni and Friends of Semmes School, Inc., a non-profit 501(c) 3 volunteer organization, in order to preserve the 1902 one-room Semmes School and return it to its original location. The Mobile County School Board had planned to tear down the school but their plans changed as a result of the persuasive efforts of this group of concerned citizens. The Mobile County School Board gave the organization a 99-year lease of the original property and the school was moved back to its original site in 1998. The school was restored to its 1902 condition in 1999 by volunteers and with donations from the community. It continues to operate today with volunteers as a hands-on 1900s school.

The goal of the volunteer organization, the Alumni & Friends of Semmes School is to continue to utilize the 1902 School as a “living history classroom” for the Semmes Community. Student field trips and adult tours of Heritage Park are scheduled by appointment. Interested parties may call 251-649-0270 to schedule these appointments.

The Malone Chapel is also located in Heritage Park. It is a replica of Mt. Pleasant Church that was located on this spot originally. The Chapel is available for weddings and special events with the funds contributing to the operational costs of Heritage Park. You may call 251-649-0270 if you would like to rent the chapel.

In 2016, Heritage Park volunteer, Mrs. Jeanette Byrd started a blog which further details Semmes history and the life and times of our past. For an informative trip down memory lane you may connect to Mrs. Byrd’s blog at Visit Semmes Heritage Park Blog.

The Alumni and Friends of Semmes School (aka, Heritage Park) sponsor several other activities in the Semmes Community throughout the year to include the Annual Old Fashioned Christmas Celebration-(the 1st Friday in December), the Camellia Festival-(January), and the Annual Semmes Heritage Day-(1st Saturday in May).

Additional Goals of the Semmes Heritage Park Volunteer Organization are:

  • Promote education through hands-on history
  • Positively affect the quality of life and growth in the area

Disc Golf Course – “The Admiral”

Download Pavillion Rental Information Here

“The Admiral”

The Admiral is a Championship Disc Golf Course located inside the Semmes Municipal Park at 8108 Morris Hill Road, Semmes, Alabama. The course was designed by John Houck, the premier master designer for disc golf in the United States. This course is expected to be used not just by local players within our community, but by thousands of regional and even national visitors each year. Professional PDGA Tournaments will be hosted at this course throughout the year. The site was dedicated in November 2016, however the official grand opening occurred in January 2017.

The Admiral Disc Golf Course is a par 65 with three sets of tee to accommodate all levels of players. John Houck has stated the Admiral, his 100th designed disc golf course, reminds him a lot of the course he designed for the International Disc Golf Center (IDGC) in Appling, Georgia, just outside of Augusta, where long fairways were carved out of a densely wooded county park. There are two ponds incorporated in the Admiral’s design and subtle topography changes come into play as well adding to the course’s complexity.
