Montgomery is the second largest city in the state. It is nationally known for its many historic/cultural landmarks and events such as the Alabama State Capitol, Dexter Avenue King Memorial Church, First White House of the Confederacy, Montgomery Bus Boycott, Hank Williams Memorial, Alabama War Memorial and Alabama Shakespeare Theater. The city attracted the first electric street car system and Wright Brothers (Orville & Wilbur) first school for powered flight. Today, Montgomery is the home of both Maxwell and Gunter Air Force Bases. In 2004, Montgomery landed one of the biggest economic development projects when Hyundai Motors Manufacturing Alabama built its $1.4 billion automotive plant. The Montgomery location became the first assembly and manufacturing plant in the United States.
