DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Landmark Park, Alabama’s Official Museum of Agriculture, received some well-appreciated financial help.
The park, which houses many historical buildings and artifacts, received a check for $400,000.
The money will be used to bring in new exhibits and to complete various improvements in the Agricultural Museum. According to the park’s museum curator, park officials have big plans for that big check.
“We have a large collection of artifacts that date back to the early 1800’s and it’s going to give better housing for those artifacts,” said Alabama Agriculture Museum Curator Kari Barley. “And better viewing for the public and to further our education. We’re going to have classrooms, collection storage, a children’s interactive section. It’s going to be a really great addition to the museum.”
While Landmark Park itself is open, the agriculture museum is currently closed while they work on improvements. However, park officials hope to have it open for Fall Farm Day later this year.
