What We're Up To...

The Dog Days of summer are generally considered as the doldrums period of the year, but this year seems to belie this bit of folklore. Things seem to be busier than ever, and some days seem to be absolutely crazy. Obviously, more folks are getting out and visiting, and we welcome them stopping by.

Over the passage of time (and increased usage of our files), many of our records have become sorted into — for want of a better term — a collection in random order, not to mention upside down and backwards. Thanks to the diligence of one of our volunteers, most of these records have been put back into order. Imagine that! We can now actually lay our hands on a target record without wondering where it might be.

The Museum has been chosen by the Alabama Humanities Alliance to be the first location to host the September 2023 "Crossroads: Change in Rural America" traveling display. This display is sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution. There will be additional details available soon.

We are truly blessed.

–Amy Rhudy, Curator, BCMM
