Alabama 200” signs are popping up all over: at Good Hope Baptist Church, with church members, Good Hope Mayor Jerry Bartlett, Rep. Corey Harbison, R- Good Hope, Good Hope City Councilwoman Susan Eller, and representatives of the church / Drew Green
GOOD HOPE – On Oct. 25, the Cullman County “Alabama 200” Bicentennial Committee delivered two marker signs to the city of Good Hope. They were placed at the 175-year-old Good Hope Baptist Church and at Good Hope Elementary School. Good Hope’s first school was founded shortly after the church, and met in the church building, before moving next door in 1892.
The Bicentennial Committee has placed 12 signs, so far, at sites including the Crooked Creek battlefield, Hanceville Drug Company, Garden City’s little school, the site of Baileyton’s Alliance Store. In Cullman, you can find the signs at the County Museum, Old Depot and Ave Maria Grotto. On each sign is a small rack of brochures that will direct you to other historic sites around the county.
For more information on the Bicentennial celebration, or to get a sign for a historic site (They don’t have to be 200 years old!), contact Bicentennial Committee Chairman Drew Green at the Cullman County Museum.
