Dothan is Alabama's eighth-largest city, with a population of 71,072 at the 2020 census. It is named after the biblical city where Joseph's brothers threw him into a cistern and sold him into slavery in Egypt. The city is the main transportation and commercial hub for a significant part of southeastern Alabama, southwest Georgia, and nearby portions of the Florida Panhandle. One-quarter of the U.S. peanut crop is harvested within 75 miles (121 km) of Dothan. Tornadoes are a frequent risk during the spring, summer, and fall; the city's tornado activity is slightly below the Alabama state average, but slightly above the average for the United States. The Southern Company constructed the Joseph M. Farley Nuclear Generating Station near the city between 1970 and 1981; this 1,776-megawatt facility generates about 13,000 gigawatt-hours (47,000 TJ) per year. It also hosts the annual National Peanut Festival at the Pe peanut Festival Fairgrounds. The town was the scene of a deadly altercation resulting from a dispute over a tax levied on wagons operating within city limits. The arrest of some of the alliance's men led to a riot that left two men dead and others seriously wounded. On November 11, 1885, the citizens voted to incorporate, naming their new city Dothsan at the suggestion of a local clergyman after discovering that "Poplar Head" was already registered with the U-S. post office for a town in northern Alabama.
