Shelby County will turn 200 years old on February 7th, but on February 4th the Shelby County Historical Society, Inc. will pay tribute to this milestone during their quarterly meeting at the Shelby County Museum & Archives. The event begins at 2 p.m.
We are thrilled to have historian Mike Bunn as our guest speaker. Bunn, a member of the Alabama Humanities Foundation’s Bicentennial Scholars, will present on early Alabama history. His Bicentennial-focused presentation,“Alabama: From Territory to State,” is a fast-moving and richly illustrated presentation that will introduce audiences to Alabama’s tumultuous founding era.
This presentation is made possible by the Alabama Humanities Foundation. The Alabama Humanities Foundation—the state humanities council and partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities— fosters learning, understanding, and appreciation of our people, communities, and cultures through the humanities.
This event is open to the public. A reception will follow.
We hope to see you there!
