Landmark Park is dedicated to preserving the cultural and natural heritage of the Wiregrass region of southeast Alabama, hosting educational programs and special events. The 100-acre park features an 1890's living history farm, a one-room schoolhouse, a general store, a turn-of the-century church, elevated boardwalks, nature trails, wildlife exhibits, a planetarium, "barnyard playground" and a picnic area.

Quote from Landmark Park's Events Schedule​: "Turn back the clock 100 years and experience living history demonstrations of sheep shearing, blacksmithing, plowing with draft animals, basket-weaving, quilting, and other traditional spring farm activities. Entertainment will include an "Old-Time Fiddlers Convention" and folk music."
