Smithsonian Exhibit in Red Bay

Red Bay, Alabama is hosting a traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian called "The Way We Worked."  It will be at the Weatherford Centre from September 14-October 25. The exhibit comes to Red Bay through a partnership between the Smithsonian, the National Archives, and Alabama Humanities Foundation, and the Alabama Tourism Department.


It is good for us to remember where we came from.  It is good for us to remember to be thankful.


 
This could be my mother, my grandmother, or my great-grandmother.

The Alabama Music Hall of Fame also has an exhibit there.





Red Bay's famous daughter, singer Tammy Wynette, is
recognized, too.
 

The exhibit is open from 9 to 5 weekdays, and on the weekends during special events.  There is no admission charge, and the people there will make you feel right at home.
