Fort Payne Hosiery Museum

Located next door to Hunt Hall, the museum houses exhibits from the industry’s beginnings through its zenith when Fort Payne was “The Sock Capital of the World”. Recently acquired by Dekalb Landmarks from the Hosiery Association, visitors can freely view displays of the original sock mills with materials and photographs from the boom days of Fort Payne. Please call to schedule a tour or if you have hosiery mill memorabilia to donate or loan.
