DOTHAN ALABAMA

Dothan Alabama
“The Peanut Capital of the World”

Dothan Alabama, in the southeast corner of the state, is a hub of commerce with an interesting and rich history. Its name derives from Genesis 37:17: “let us go to Dothan.” In addition to the area producing almost one quarter of the total peanut crop of the United States, the Dothan area serves much of the commercial transportation of the country by connecting parts of Georgia, Florida and Alabama. Dothan is the County seat of Houston County Alabama and is 20 miles west of the Georgia state line and 18 miles north of the Florida state line. Dothan Alabama History
In the late 1700s and 1800s, horse and ox-drawn covered wagons from Charleston, Savannah, and Jacksonville, creaked and groaned across the south as pioneer families searched for a place to build new homes and to start a new life. Those pioneers who passed through the vast pine forests in the southeast corner of the territory that was to later become the state of Alabama would often stop at a spring known as Poplar Head, where they would camp for a while and rest.
