The Johnson House Museum Proj​ect

Prestwick community and surrounding area has rich history. As a 501(c)(3) historical organization, the Prestwick Preservation Society’s (PPS) mission is to preserve this history for future generations. 

Our current project is restoration of the Johnson House Museum, located on the southern end of Leroy on the Prestwick road. Currently many local artifacts, vintage photos, documents and antiques are in storage. Renovating the Johnson House Museum will give these artifacts a home.


The Johnson House is listed on the Alabama Registry of Historic Places. Our goal is to renovate this historic building and exhibit historic treasures of Washington County. We have made much progress, however, additional funds are needed to secure structural issues. COVID-19 and increased construction costs slowed renovation but with friends and community supporters, I know we can complete this project and help preserve history in Washington County.

We invite you to support this incredible historic cause. Thank you for your interest. Please send preservation 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.
