Alabama Living History and Arts Tour
A Celebration of Cultural Heritage
Jacksonville State University Field Schools in partnership with the
Calhoun County Commission and Alabama Bureau of Tourism and Travel are developing a cultural history travel program, Alabama
Living History and Arts Tour, for the Choccolocco Heritage Society and other senior participants.
“Calhoun County has an extremely rich and diverse cultural heritage that must be preserved and promoted for future generations,”
says Renee Morrison. “It is an honor for the field schools to serve as a liaison between our living treasures in Calhoun County
and other artists, historians and specialists throughout Alabama. We appreciate the support of Commissioner Robert Downing,
which makes this unique program possible.”
The members of the Heritage Society enjoyed their tour of Historic Huntsville, which was the first of several planned trips in our
Alabama Living History series. The second trip, planned for this autumn, will be an overnight excursion to Wilcox County to
visit the Gee’s Bend quilters, a tour of the Civil Rights trail: Selma and Montgomery, and a visit to the Rosa Parks Museum.
