SS Republic Treasure Abounds Near Gulf Shores

Discover Civil-war era shipwreck treasure at a most unusual place - the Baldwin County Heritage Museum in Elberta, Alabama (a few miles north of Gulf Shores). The Odyssey Marine Exploration company, who found the lost SS Republic which sank 1,700 feet below the surface of the Atlantic, chose this unique location for their world-class exhibit because the company's co-owner has strong family roots in the little town of Elberta.

The entire family will enjoy viewing remarkable samplings of the 51,000 gold and silver coins and nearly 14,000 artifacts from the shipwreck. Visitors will learn about the courage and survival of the passengers and crew of this paddlewheel steamship that succumbed to a Hurricane off the coast of Georgia in October 1865 while enroute from New York to New Orleans. This vessel participated in the Battle of Mobile Bay before being turned into a passenger ship so there are strong connections of this ship to South Alabama.

The museum opens Wednesday thru Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the cost is only $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $8 for children to view an amazing slice of history.
