The Jackson County Historical Association will meet on Sunday, July 28 at 2:00 in the historic Stevenson Depot Hotel, located next to the Stevenson Depot Museum in downtown Stevenson. 

Dr. John F. Kvach will speak. His topic will be "Old South, New South, De Bow's South," talking about how Vernon King Stevenson’s vision and the history of Stevenson, Alabama, fit into the larger history of the 19th century South.  

Dr. Kvach is a nationally recognized Southern historian, with degrees from the University of Tennessee and West Virginia University.  He was for ten years a history faculty member at the University of Alabama Huntsville, leaving recently to join the staff of Liberty Learning Foundation in Huntsville, as Vice President.  Liberty Learning Foundation is a non-profit organization facilitating active, immersive civics and character programs in K-12 classrooms and orchestrating local events that empower schools, parents, local leaders, and businesses to take ownership in the future of community and country.

He has written three books and numerous articles.  He is a lively, funny, and engaging speaker, and much sought after as a presenter throughout the country. Dr. Kvach says, “Come find out about where we stood as the nation around us changed!”

The Stevenson Hotel and Depot were built in 1872 and both are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The museum will be open for tours, and members and guests can see the recent renovation and repair work done to the hotel building after an incident left a large hole in the building.  

Both members and non-members are welcome
