FOWL Presents Historian Jim Phillips January 24th, 2019 at 6 p.m. at the Wetumpka Public Library

Come enjoy this presentation, geared to honor Alabama's bicentennial (1819 - 2019) that takes a look at the old pioneer roads that settlers used to come into Alabama as it reached statehood. We will view a great video (narrated by Mr. Phillips) of amazing places and lost antebellum sites in Alabama, with a focus on antebellum ghost towns, lost and found antebellum treasures, antebellum riverboat and stagecoach travel, the early 1800s patent medicines, etc. Phillips will bring with him a table museum of antebellum bottles, coins, maps, and drawings. Everyone is invited to touch and examine these artifacts. This meeting is free and is open to the public.
