Find your "sweet home Alabama" in Dothan, a city with a rich history

The Community: Fort Rucker/Dothan, AL
The town of Dothan, AL, locatred in the southeastern corner of AL 20 miles from Georgia and 16 miles from Florida, was established as Poplar Head in 1885 as a trading community. The first settlers built their homes around a small spring in the early 1800s and as time progressed, built a trading town. During the Civil War, the town was raided many times.

After the Civil War, the town began to grow. Industry came to Poplar Head in the form of sawmills and turpentine factories. This led to more growth which led to the decision to form an actual town. However, there was already a Poplar Head in Alabama.

Dothan's name comes from a Bible verse (Genesis 37:17) stating: For I heard them say, "Let us go to Dothan." The township was officially incorporated on Nov. 10, 1885. Growth was further spurred by the arrival of the railroad, and that growth led to the creation of Houston County in 1903. But it wasn't until a scientist named Dr. George Washington Carver began to experiment with peanuts (among other things) that the town truly flourished. Because of Dr. Carver's studies, peanuts became a staple crop for the area. With rich soil, Dothan quickly became the Peanut Capital of the world. Dothan continues to honor Dr. Carver's discoveries at the George Washington Carver Interpretative Museum in downtown Dothan and the National Peanut Festival.

You can still see much of Dothan's history when you drive through. From the Dothan Opera House to the various parks and murals, it's clear that Dothan is proud of its history. You can spend the day checking out the Dothan Area Botanical Gardens or the Wiregrass Museum of Art. In the spring, walk down the Dogwood and Azalea Trail, or you can even just spend the day looking at the outdoor murals and art.

The Facility: Fort Rucker Army Base
Fort Rucker and Army Aviation trace their origins back to earlier eras, as both were products of World War II. During World War II, America conducted a Client mobilization unprecedented in its history in terms of total numbers. The United States put into uniform over 16 million men and approximately 333,000 women. This mobilization called for the creation of new training camps and military bases, including Camp Rucker, named in honor of Colonel Edmund W. Rucker, a Civil War Confederate Officer, who was given the honorary title of "General." With the consolidation of all Army Aviation flight training at Fort Rucker in 1973, the post became the Mecca for Army aviators. Air Force helicopter pilots have also trained here since 1971, as have students from more than 60 foreign countries.
