Don’t forget the Exhibit!

News Staff Report

Only a little more than a week remains to view the Bicentennial Exhibit at The Club. The last day, May 23, will be here before you know it, and you don’t want to miss this opportunity.
Hours are as follows:
Monday through Friday – noon until 6 p.m.
Saturday – 10 until 2 p.m.
Sunday – 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.
There is no charge for viewing the exhibit, which is sponsored by the Alabama Humanities Foundation with support from the Alabama Bicentennial Commission and Alabama Department of Archives and History.
The exhibit features artifacts, storyboards, vintage and antique photographs and more items that trace the history of Alabama and Escambia County. In addition, the exhibit is complimented by artistic panels depicting the various periods of Alabama’s history and some of the people who played prominent roles in that history.
Interactive computer tablets at each kiosk allow attendees to delve deeper into the historical periods and to better understand how Alabama became a state and how Escambia County was carved out of Monroe, Baldwin and Conecuh counties.
Groups or organization meetings are welcome.
