Project Historical Sketch: Recognizing that the church played a significant role in the social and cultural as well as spiritual lives of Wiregrass citizens, Wiregrass Archives director, Dr. Martin T. Olliff, began in 2003 a four-phase project to document churches in a 30-county coverage area. Phase 1 was a windshield survey of churches in the rural areas of the counties; Phase 2 requires contacting those churches to gather demographic data about their congregations; Phase 3 seeks to locate and collect church records, and Phase 4 will produce or gather histories of churches and archivally arrange and describe church records.
Various entities have supported this work through monetary grants, particularly the Troy State University Dothan Faculty Council, the Troy University Faculty Development Committee, and the Historic Chattahoochee Commission.
Henry Co., AL, Survey Historical Sketch: Scotty Kirkland conducted the Phase 1 survey in 2007 as a work for hire, supported by a grant from the Troy University Dothan Campus Library. WA staff members Tina Bernath and Angela K. Smith conducted the Phase 2 surveys by telephone, letter and email in Spring 2009
Scope / Content: Contains information on rural churches in Henry County, Alabama, pursuant to all phases of the overall project. Files contain a combination of Alabama Historic Commission historical building survey forms, measured-drawing site plans, printed photographs from Phase 1 fieldwork, and histories, bulletins, demographic surveys, and other information gathered in Phase 2. CD-Roms contain digital photographs taken as part of the Phase 1 windshield survey.
Samford University microfilms records of churches in Alabama. The inventory notes which Wiregrass churches have records at Samford.
