The Genealogical Society of East Alabama will welcome Julian Singer to its quarterly meeting Saturday, April 15, at the Museum of East Alabama.
Singer, who serves as executive director of Historic Westville, will give a presentation at 11 a.m. on Historic Westville’s move to Columbus, Georgia. Using examples of historic structures, Singer will also cover the history of rural Chattahoochee Valley from 1820 to 1880 “through active and passive interpretation,” according to a flyer for the meeting.
Historic Westville is a “living history museum” that was founded in the late 1960s in Lumpkin, Georgia — Singer’s hometown — but moved to Columbus in June 2019. Singer has been the executive director for three years.
The presentation will be held from 11 a.m. to noon. It is free and open to the public. The Museum of East Alabama is located in historic downtown Opelika at 121 N. 9th St.
