Just a few miles from the Georgia and Florida state lines lies the progressive city of Dothan, AL. Dothan, the peanut capital of the world, offers all the bells and whistles of big-city life but retains the charm for which the South is revered.

Founded in 1881, Headland is located in the southwestern portion of Henry County, AL. Early residents earned a living in the timber industry, but Headland has since prospered in agriculture, commerce, and manufacturing. However, nothing has brought as much prosperity to Headland as the peanut, which is the foundation of the region’s agricultural business. Headland offers convenient access to highways, rail, water, and air centers.
Headland is currently in the process of a major redesign of their town square, modernizing sidewalk design, landscaping, and lighting. This small town of less than 5,000 is considered one of the finest residential areas in Henry County, and it has shown a commitment to family values and quality of life. Quality schools, safe communities, excellent healthcare, and efficient city operations are all hallmarks of Headland. Visitors to the area can enjoy a hot air balloon ride at Skycruise Balloon Flights or partake in a family fun day at Corndodgers Farm. Ride the Cow Train, walk the Sunflower Path, or fire off the amazing pneumatic corn cannon.

Is Cremation Appropriate?
One of the services offered by Holman Funeral Home is cremation. Cremation has become a popular choice due to increased affordability and environmental concerns. When cremation is chosen, the embalming and viewing stage can be skipped, which helps to lessen expenses. Additionally, certain burial costs are also omitted with cremation.
Many people view cremation as a more ‘green’ alternative, since resources such as wood, metal, cloth, and chemicals are unnecessary with cremation. Cremation also helps to preserve already limited green space, since a traditional burial is not required. However, when choosing cremation, families can still have a traditional funeral and burial, if desired.
A very strict protocol is always followed with each cremation to ensure the deceased is treated with the utmost dignity and reverence. Each cremation is done individually. A tightly controlled process ensures proper identification of cremated remains.
