Formed as a territory on March 3, 1817, Alabama became the nation’s twenty-second state on December 14, 1819. ALABAMA 200 is a three-year celebration of the people, places, and events that form our rich history.
ALABAMA 200 is also a chance to lay the foundation for the future. Over the next three years, it will invest in schools and teachers, engage communities, and encourage citizens and visitors alike to explore and learn about the state.
