The mission of the Wilcox Bicentennial Society is to support, create, and execute events and activities that commemorate the stories of our people, place, and path to Alabama statehood in Wilcox County. We will accomplish this through educational programs, community activities, and county-wide initiatives that teach, inspire, and entertain using history as the main focal point that brings us together.
