New tourism sign installed downtown, celebrates 200 years of local history

Fort Payne Main Street Interim Executive Director Connie Fuller inspects a new bicentennial tourism sign installed this week, along with Fort Payne City Council member Johnny Eberhart, at right, and Fort Payne Main Street Treasurer Steve Malcolm. According to Fort Payne Main Street President Darlene Rotch, the organization has asked the city to let it occupy the structure next to The Chandelier Tree. She said the area has become a hub for the historic main street district and has advantages over the current location behind the Coal & Iron Building. These include a new parking lot, nice public restrooms, and proximity to the Fort Payne Opera House, Hosiery Museum, Depot Museum and the seasonal farmer’s market. The city council plans to discuss the proposal at a future work session.
