Designed as a guide to Alabama's historic destinations, the Alabama Bicentennial PastPort is a passport to the past. Presented by the Alabama Bicentennial Commission and co-sponsors Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, Inc., Airbus, Verizon, and Alabama NewsCenter, the PastPort encourages people of all ages to explore every corner of the state. The guide features destinations—including historic sites, museums, and landmarks—in each of Alabama's 67 counties combined with historical information and beautifully designed original artwork.

The lesson plans in this PastPort Education Guide were developed by Dr. Lesa Roberts for teachers to use along with the PastPort in teaching students about historical sites in all regions of Alabama.
