Face book-Semmes Heritage Park
The state of Alabama will be 200 years old Dec. 14, 2019. A three year celebration called AL200 began in 2017 with a different theme for each year. 2017 was Exploring Our Places; 2018 Honoring Our People, 2019 Sharing Our Stories. In 1996 a book was written by Semmes Heritage called Scrapbook of Memories. This is the only written history of Semmes from the people of Semmes. The book is a collection of pictures, and stories of some of the early pioneers of Semmes. It is no longer in print; however, as part of the AL 200 celebration, Semmes Heritage is in the process of preparing a revised second addition. We are collecting, pictures, stories, Semmes family ancestry. Do you have any you could share? We would like to hear from you! Thanks! Jeanette
