About Us

Making Alabama. A Bicentennial Traveling Exhibit is one of the signature events throughout Alabama planned 2017-2019 in celebration of 200 years of statehood.

The exhibit is being presented by Alabama Humanities Foundation with support from Alabama Department of Archives and History, Alabama Bicentennial Commission, corporate citizens, individuals and organizations across the state.

It is an effort to preserve and present our state’s storied history with a focus on the decisions and turning points that shape Alabama, which includes opportunities for host communities to preserve and present their own history.

This is a significant part of the much-heralded celebration of our becoming a state. The exhibit will travel to all 67 counties from March 2018 through November 2019, leading up to our official 200 years of statehood date, Dec. 4, 2019.

Making Alabama is presented by Alabama Humanities Foundation in partnership with Alabama Department of Archives and History and the Alabama Bicentennial Commission.
