MONTEVALLO – The Montevallo Study Club provides locals with an opportunity to learn about and visit more of the surrounding community.

The Montevallo Study Club has been around since 1933 and includes a maximum of twenty members. The club meets monthly for nine months out of the year and takes summers off.

Each year, the program committee selects a subject to study and topics are assigned to members each September for the upcoming year. The Montevallo Study Club also has a civic and welfare component—awarding financial assistance to non-profit organizations in the community.

After previously suspending activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Montevallo Study Club concluded its 2022-2023 year. In addition to business meetings and a Christmas celebration, the members visited five local attractions.

Personal guides at each location enriched the experience with a conducted tour providing in-depth information regarding the history and function of each site.

  • The Veteran’s Shrine at the American Village with Tom Walker
