Dothan has a deep history - from farming to railroads, music to movies and of course, the peanuts! Peanuts are the largest agricultural export in the Wiregrass area and approximately half of the peanuts grown in the United States come from Dothan. Dothan is also Alabama's Mural City. Here, you'll find murals dedicated to Ray Charles, Johnny Mack Brown, a Tuskeegee Airman and a Creek Indian Chief. There is a mural representing the Dothan Riot of 1889, and the capture of a military wife during a battle on a boat. The largest and first mural is not surprisingly, The Salute to the Peanut Industry. It begins with Dr. George Washington Carver and ends with the modern day National Peanut Festival. Don't miss Foster Fest - where Dothan shuts down their most popular street, Foster Street, every third Friday night between May and October for the largest street festival in the area. Vendors and food trucks line the sidewalks while live music plays from multiple stages.
