GENEVA, AL. (WTVY) - A ribbon cutting was held Monday morning to kick off the celebration of the 200th anniversary of Alabama and Geneva.

'Making Alabama', a 19-month bicentennial traveling exhibit, will blend collages and interactive computer tablets to tell the story of Alabama.

The exhibit plans to convey a message of "hope" in its presentation about the future.

The exhibit will be on display at The Vintage Room, Monday-Friday, 9AM to 6PM until January 25th.

Teacher Michele Adcock, says "I teach U.S. History at Geneva High School to 11th grade and I don't think there's anything more important than knowing your history. They'll also see many artifacts that have been contributed by citizens around the area. Another tour is taking place at the Kenan House and it has numerous artifacts as well."

The Kenan Home will be open to highlight people in Geneva and the Wiregrass area who have interesting items to share with our community.
