Dothan has a population of nearly 70,000 residents and about 180 miles south of Atlanta, GA. The area now known as the city of Dothan was originally inhabited by the Creek and Alabama Native Americans. At that time, it was known as Poplar Head.

It was first settled by the whites in the 1830s. The area's first post office was established in 1885. In the same year it was renamed Dothan because there was another post office called Poplar Head in northern Alabama. The city was incorporated on November 11, 1885.
