LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition exhibit, Crossroads:  Change in Rural America is now on display at Postmark La Follette.

Crossroads: Change in Rural America offers small towns, like La Follette, a chance to look at their own paths to highlight the changes that affected their fortunes over the past century.  The exhibition will prompt discussions about what happened when America’s rural population became a minority of the country’s population and the ripple effects that occurred.
