The Railroad Made Dothan
With a little bluff and under the table dealings, a few concerned businessmen “paid” the way for the railroad to be constructed through Dothan. The Alabama Midland Railroad made its way from Bainbridge to Sprague in Montgomery County, October 4, 1889.
In 1902 the Atlantic Coast Line took over the Alabama Midland operation. The company shops were at that time located in Pinckard and later moved to Dothan, adding more stature and giving economic muscle to “The Hub of the Wiregrass”.
