Yesterday I attended a meeting about the new National Geographic Gulf Coast States new Geotourism Map Guide. 341 Alabama places are listed on this new interactive website at

Lee Sentell, State Tourism Director said “Partnering with National Geographic gives us a new way to bring attention to many of our unique destinations.”

Right now, the First White House of the Confederacy is signed up under the category of “Battlefields, Civil Rights, Historic Home and Gardens. Well, we are an “historic home” but perhaps the Museum  category will fit us better. We need to work on that!

I do think us being on this site has good possibilities for the future. An interesting factoid was presented at the meeting – The more pictures and videos one has on their website, the better. Obviously, people would rather look than read. Like it or not, its the way of the world today. Do check out the website shown above.
