In 2019, Alabama will commemorate its bicentennial.

Two hundred years is a big birthday, and a big birthday calls for a big celebration!

For three years, from March 3, 2017, to December 14, 2019, ALABAMA 200 will celebrate the people, places, and stories that make the state unique.

Fairhope Public Library will begin its celebration with this presentation by Dean Mosher.
