As the city of White Hall grows, the list of things to do and see grows with it. Residents of the community will attest that there’s nothing quite like attending the Founder’s Day Festival or strolling through City Park at Christmas time. Spending a Saturday watching the Pee Wee Football League or a few weeknights at the baseball and softball fields and football field for football and soccer is a common pastime. The newly built Crenshaw Springs Water Park is definitely a crowd favorite with its fast water slides, rock climbing wall, splash zone, downpour derby and zip-line for the kids. White Hall is full of history and we want to share it with the community. The White Hall Museum is a fun learning environment of our great community with historical displays honoring the growth of our city. Visit The James "Jitters" Morgan White Hall Community Center for activities benefiting the entire family and scheduled events hosted by individuals in our community. While the size of the city may be small, the amount of recreational activities it offers is inexhaustible.
