The Johnson House Museum Proj​ect

Prestwick, and surrounding Washington County communities are rich with history and memories! As a 501(c)(3) historical organization, the Prestwick Preservation Society’s (PPS) mission is to preserve these treasures for future generations. 

Our current project is the restoration of the Johnson House Museum in the Prestwick community. Currently many noteworthy artifacts, vintage photos, documents and antiques from our community are in storage. The Johnson House needs renovation to save and exhibit untold local history. 

So few properties in our community are listed in the Alabama Registry of Historic Places, it is important to preserve this one.

PPS’ goal is to renovate the historic building in order to exhibit these historic treasures. While we have made much progress, additional funds are needed to secure the foundation and other structural matters. COVID-19 and increased construction costs have slowed our work. However, with friends and supporters like you, I know that we can complete this project and contribute to protecting legacies in Washington County.

Can you support this incredible historic cause? Any amount you can contribute will make a difference. Thank you for your interest in preserving something special in our community. By partnering with us now, you are investing in tomorrow. Please send your contributions to:

Revival of the Washington County Flag

The Washington County Flag was designed in 1976 by Nathaniel Henry but had fallen from the memory of many Washington County citizens. In December of 2019, PPS planned two events in honor of Alabama's Bicentennial and the county flag. These events spotlighted Washington County, "the county where Alabama began", the county flag and Bishop Nathaniel Henry, the flag’s designer.
