Cultural-Heritage Tourism Session


The Town of Hobson City hosts an informative session on the cultural and heritage tourism economic development initiative being developed by the Historic Black Towns and Settlements Alliance. Town of Hobson City Mayor Alberta McCrory and the team laying the groundwork for the initiative says the session introduced the 5-state Cultural Heritage Trail, scheduled to be unveiled in Spring 2019, encompassing Historic Black Towns which will include Hobson City. The city’s first effort to secure the seeds funding for the project is a planning grant application to the HBTSA in preparation for the National Endowment for the Humanities in August 2016. Hobson City is Alabama’s oldest incorporated African American municipality.
