Roanoke’s Annie L. Awbrey Public Library will be one of five stops in Alabama for a Smithsonian Institute exhibit that explores the changes in rural life in America.
“Crossroads: Change in Rural America” will be at the Roanoke library from December 18, 2023 to February 2, 2024.
“This Smithsonian traveling exhibit looks at the remarkable evolution in rural life over the past century — and explores how Americans have responded and adapted,” the exhibit website explains. “The exhibit will be paired with local programming and allow visitors to consider the central role of rural Alabama in our shared future.”
The exhibit is a result of a combined effort of the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum on Main Street program and the Alabama Humanities Alliance. Once in Roanoke the exhibit will tie in with local entities, such as the Randolph County Historical Museum, Main Street Committee, and Handley High School Community Studies Class and School Career Development Center to provide events and information specific to Roanoke and Randolph County.
