American VillageTuesday, November 17, 2009
One weekend, we gathered the boys up to take them to American Village in Montevallo. It was closed! Turns out, it's only open during the week, largely (I'm just guessing here) because they host many weddings, and secondly because it's a huge draw for school groups - but again that's just a guess. Either way, seems like it would be wonderful for kids who can't go during the week to have the opportunity to visit on a Saturday.
It was announced last week that a $6 million replica of Independence Hall will be built at American Village. It is supposed to include a visitor's center and a colonial coffee house.
