“Making Alabama, A Bicentennial Traveling Exhibit” will open at Landmark Park during Victorian Christmas on December 9 and will be on display through December 30. Presented by the Alabama Humanities Foundation, this exhibit displays over 200 years of Alabama’s history and looks toward the future. This traveling exhibit is making its way around the state, making a stop in each county. This impressive display blends art, music, spoken word and interactive computer tablets to tell the story of Alabama, all the way from becoming a territory to achieving statehood. It also conveys a message of hope for the future. Landmark Park, like the other host communities, will include some historical exhibits and collateral programming and activities to showcase the history of Houston county. To ensure everyone has a chance to view the exhibit, Landmark Park will offer free admission from December 9-30 to the public. This is a great time to explore the exhibit and learn about our state and local history, as well as enjoy the park’s boardwalk, nature trail, Wiregrass Farmstead and Barnyard playground. While admission is free, space is limited. For groups of 10 or more, please register by clicking here.
