Governor Kay Ivey made the trip down to Dothan to help celebrate the reopening. She shared that her rural roots made the exhibit especially meaningful, and is incredibly excited for Alabama students to have a new, interactive way to discover our history.
“This is history at its best. It’s a great way to teach our young people about the past, and to know where they came from. When they know what the past was like, they can work toward the future. I am very proud to be here and be a part of this.”—Governor Kay Ivey, Alabama
