These pictures show the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge HQ, the fishing pier on Flint Creek and the Flint Creek Trail bridge - great parts of the history and amenities of the Refuge.
Our great refuge is over 80 years old and not only protects wildlife but also provides public viewing of animals, walking trails and many other amenities for the public. Its beauty attracts thousands of visitors annually, making the refuge one of the city's prime tourist attractions.
David Breland is kind of a big deal in Morgan County. His memory goes WAAAAY back (check out his picture), but he also is a local expert in Morgan County history. David is Director of Historical Resources and Events for the City of Decatur in Morgan County, Alabama.
While this site was developed to share our local treasures with our own community and armchair visitors from around the world during COVID-19, please visit our museums, attractions, hotels, shops, and restaurants in person when all of this craziness is over. Plan your visit to Decatur-Morgan County and Downtown Decatur, Alabama.
