CURRENT NEWS

President's Message
Fall 2006

As we begin our fall activities I am sure you will be pleased to know that our yard sale at the Welcome Center on August 5 was a success. We raised $461. A very special thank you to those members who donated items, helped price them, and helped set up and worked at the yard sale itself. It was hard work but worth it and I believe we all enjoyed this event.

The funds raised from this event went to purchase a new copier to replace one that was beyond repair. It was set up in the Gift Shop/Library on August 10. It produces much better copies than the old one.

Larry Herbst, Director of the Depot Museum, reported that we received a $1,000 donation from the Wal-Mart Foundation. These funds will be used to upgrade the lighting in the Depot Museum. Plans are under way for this much needed upgrade.

Our membership continues to grow. Membership chair Phyllis Owens reports that as of August 21 we have 180 members. I should like to see us attain a membership of 300 by this time next year. This is achievable if all of us would invite a relative, neighbor, or fellow church members to join our society.

The Board of Directors is working hard to improve our society and have generated a number of great ideas, which we are putting in place. Members can look for some newspaper articles in the near future about our activities and operations.

We still need volunteers for all of our properties. Recently three of our volunteers have moved from Enterprise and left vacancies. If you could spare 2 hours of your time each week we could use your help.

Don’t forget that our first program of the year will be at our meeting at 2:00 pm on Sunday, September 17. We will meet in Room 100 of Talmadge Hall, Enterprise-Ozark-Community College. Our speaker will be Dr. Martin Orliff, Director of the Archives of Wiregrass History and Culture, Troy University. Please attend and invite a friend or neighbor to the program.

Thank you for your support of our society.

HISTORY of the PEA RIVER HISTORICAL & GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY

Excerpt from the Official Publication of the Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society, Pea River Trails, Volume 24, Fall 1999, Number 3:

The Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society was begun in 1970 to collect, record, and preserve the history and genealogy of those who came to these piney woods to settle and make their home. Enterprise was incorporated on April 27, 1896.

Perhaps, Enterprise's most notable claim to fame is the only monument in the world dedicated to a pest--the BOLL WEEVIL. It was erected on December 11, 1919 in the center ofdowntown Enterprise. The Mexican boll weevil wrought destruction to "King Cotton", the principal "money crop" of the area and farmers began to diversify their crops and introduced the peanut which became their main crop.

The Pea River Historical Society shortly after their organization, acquired the old Atlantic Coast Line Depot in downtown Enterprise in which they operated their Society and began collecting items of interest to house in the museum.

The Depot is located immediately behind the historic Rawls Hotel, although the entrance next to the railroad was originally the front entrance. The passengers coming in on the train only had a short walk into the Hotel lobby.

One of the Society's members, an avid historian and genealogist, Miss Alla James, donated a plot of land on US Highway 84 Bypass to the Society.

The Society built a log structure on the site as a rest stop and information center for transients who travel through Enterprise, and the new-comers moving into Enterprise to make their homes. Souvenirs, books, maps and brochures of interest about places and things in Alabama are available. Thousands pass through the Welcome Center each year.

One of the volunteers maintains and beautifies the landscape around the Welcome Center. A rose garden graces the front of the site, which is dedicated in honor of Dr. James F. Stanley, Sr., one of the organizers of the Pea River Society, now deceased. His wife, Maizie Stanley is still a faithful volunteer at our Gift Shop and Genealogy Library.

Home Builders of Enterprise devoted a great deal of time and effort in constructing the Welcome Center of the Society and the City of Enterprise assisted with the paved parking lot.

The Welcome Center is located on an access road that is adjacent to the ByPass. (Note: Near Arby's and Winn Dixie.)

After the celebration of the Enterprise Centennial, the Society was given a replica of an old one-room schoolhouse which was placed on the Welcome Center lot.

The Boy Scouts have built a replica of an old outdoor toilet at the Welcome Center and a replica of an old fashioned open well which were quite common a few years ago.

Groups are taken through the facilities when requested. This facility, like the other facilities of the Pea River Society, are staffed by unpaid volunteers. The Society has no paid employees, and is supported by donations, membership dues and from profit from sales of books and novelties sold in the Gift Shop and Welcome Center.

The Little Red Schoolhouse is very popular with the children and young people who have never experienced saying their lessons before several classes.

A few years ago, the Pea River Society was fortunate enough to be able to buy a building on South Main Street in which is located their Gift Shop, Office and Library. This building is their center of activity.

The Library has microfilm, microfiche and readers for them. It also contains many historical books, family sketches, photographs and other memorabilia about days gone by. Many individuals spend hours looking through the materials, and learning about their ancestors who once lived in the area. A photocopier is available for making copies of material for the researcher at the cost of ten cents per page. This is a nice price for most Societies today charge twenty five cents per page or more.

The Gift Shop contains many sovenirs including pins, caps, shirts, historical and genealogical books by local authors which are available for sale.

NEW MEMBERS WELCOME

Join us in preserving our history and heritage. The Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving history and heritage of Coffee County and its people.

We invite you to visit our library research room at 108 South Main Street, Enterprise, Alabama.

You may do your own research at any time during regular library hours which are 10 am until 4 pm Monday through Friday. Currently, Mr. Charles Stripling is being so kind as to open on Saturday mornings when he is able. If interested please phone the PRHGS Library/Gift Shoppe on Thursday mornings to inquire of Mr. Stripling if he has plans to open the following Saturday or not. These Saturday openings are unscheduled.

As all of our workers are volunteers, some may be able to assist you in your research while others will not be able to do so.

Please obey the rule of only entering the research area of the PRHGS Library with a pen and writing pad. Laptops are allowed, but laptop bag will not be allowed. Due to theft, no one will be allowed near the research documentation and materials with purses, satchels, bookbags, backpacks, laptop bags, or anything other than a pen, notepad and/or bagless laptop.

Please remove only one book from shelves at a time. Replace book before removing another book or document. This will help volunteer to keep eye on the materials for your use and help secure the security of materials for all.

We appreciate every donation of genealogical and historical information regarding our area and its people. We also welcome financial contribution at any time.

Membership dues are $15 single, $35 contributing and $100 business. However, for convenience and expediting of membership, the online sale of dues are $16.00 per year for an individual or $25.50 for an entire family. The difference in cost is due to the service charge by PayPal for handling the expedited transaction. The expiration date of membership is same for all members...December 31st.

Annual renewal is due on January 1st. Please add two dollars for late renewal when renewal membership fee is mailed after January 1st of the year.

We request that you encourage your friends and relatives to become a member of our Society, and to share their treasured memories and valuable family records with others for preservation and future reference by descendants and researchers.

With your membership, you will receive the quarterly publication of Pea River Trails.

MICROFILM PROJECT
The Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society is accepting sponsorship of microfilm at twenty one dollars per film. When film is sponsored, sponsorer can have their name, and the name of a loved one, printed onto the microfilm container. A discount on any future index books garnered from these microfilms is also being extended; discount is to match amount sponsored. These microfilms (approximately 200) were created by the Alabama Department of Archives, and are films of documents (deaths, marriages, voting registration, inventories, etc.) pertaining to Coffee County which are/were located in the Coffee County Courthouses. As anyone who has researched in our Elba Courthouse knows, the floods have taken their toll on many records....as has time. The presense of these microfilms in our Society Library is a treasure for all researchers of Coffee County's present and future use. Please be sure to include "FOR MICROFILM PROJECT ONLY" on your check and envelope...and include the name that you wish listed on film container. Example: FOR MICROFILM PROJECT ONLY Donated by Jack Doe & In Memory of John Doe; or FOR MICROFILM PROJECT ONLY Donated by Jack Doe & In Honor of John Doe.

These markers, available through the Alabama Historical Association's Historical Marker Program, cost between $1,350 and $1,695 each.
We invite your donations in any amount. If you wish to direct your contribution to a marker for a specific site, indicate that site on your check. If you wish to recommend a site for a marker, please contact us with the name of the site and the reasons you consider it worthy.

GRAVE MARKERS AVAILABLE

Through the Historical Sites Committee, the Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society is offering inexpensive granite grave markers for anyone interested. This 4" x 18" sells for $75; the 6" x 18" for $90; and the 8" x 20" for $125. There is also a very large one. The first three include the engraved name and dates. The large one has room for three lines of information. You may see samples of the first three markers at the Gift Shop, but the large one is too heavy for us to transport and display. If you desire to purchase one or more of these stones, please contact Cindy Osborne at the Gift Shop Library.

Excerpts from Boiled Peanuts and Buckeyes:
"Born in Esto, Florida, in 1932, Eudon lives in six different cities by the time he is fifteen years old. But his childhood in Enterprise, Alabama, is as sweet as watermelon savored on a hot July afternoon. It does not matter that he, T.E., and Mom live on the "wrong" side of the tracks, separated literally from the wealthy white families by the railroad tracks upon which the train carries the town's cotton and peanut products across the country. T.E., the young genius, is a budding economist, and Eudon is a future football star. They share the same side of the tracks as the poor black families, and it makes no difference that they live in a two-room wooden structure owned by the Bama Cotton Mill. They have their radio, their country & western songs, their comic books, Martin's Drug Store, Mom's homemade biscuits, the Ritz ("Picture Show") Theater, and their hand-made toys. Dominating everything is the scent of fresh peanut butter mingling with the smell of cotton that constantly floats in the air."
§
"Among my most vivid childhood memories is the pervasive smell and delectable taste of the boiled peanuts that were so much a part of Southern life . . . . How many pleasurable hours I spent indulging in these delicacies, savoring their salty flesh, I can only surmise . . . . I spent an equal amount of time strolling through the streets of Enterprise, Alabama, peddling bagfuls of the tasty morsels from a shoe box as I chanted my catchy little sales jingle: “fresh boiled peanuts, five cents a bag; fresh and fine, right off the vine. If you don’t have a nickel, I can change a dime!” . . . . I desired nothing more – until my senses were awakened by football, that is . . . . in Enterprise, Alabama . . . ."
§
"In 1995, my Aunt Myrtelee (Armstrong) Peeples, my mom’s youngest sister, who lived in Montgomery, Alabama, paid a visit to our new beachfront home in Seagrove Beach, Florida, near Panama City. She and I drove to Geneva County, Alabama, to meet with two of her and Mom’s brothers, Hilburn and Ralph Armstrong. On the way, we visited the gravesite of Ada Myrle (Whitaker) Armstrong, her and Mom’s mother, at the Whitaker Methodist Church and Cemetery. Aunt Myrtelee repeated the story of how she, Mom, Ralph, Myrle, Hilburn and Wilburn were divided up at their mother’s gravesite at the time of her funeral in March of 1922. This agonizing story had been told to me by my mom and other family members ever since I was a youngster."
§
"I had left Enterprise, Alabama, in the middle of the sixth grade. Life’s twists and turns took me to Knoxville and Oak Ridge, Tennessee; Miamisburg, Ohio; and finally to Detroit, Michigan, with no thought of whether I would ever return to this special place of my roots that my kinfolk, the Armstrongs, Hollands, and Whitakers, had called home for several generations."
§
"Standing in the midst of all this history, on the land and in the building that had been donated and financed by my great-great-grandfather, James Denard Whitaker, and surrounded by the graves of my ancestors, still humbled and warmed by the church service, I was nearly overcome with emotion . . . . Yet I knew that, like friends parting, I would never truly leave."
