Founded in 1995, the American Village serves the Nation as an educational institution whose mission is to strengthen and renew the foundations of American liberty and self-government by engaging and inspiring citizens, leaders and stewards.

Our Goals:

mission: TeachingTeaching Youth America’s Legacy of Liberty

The American Village builds good citizens on the cornerstone of liberty.

The American Village is a nationally-pioneering classroom and American history and civics education center that engages and inspires 35,000-40,000 students annually from Alabama and Southeastern states in experience-based academic programs related to American history, civics and government.

Students “step into history” and discover the power and drama of America’s journey for independence, liberty, and self-government.

The American Village is embarked on a journey to expand the number of students served on-campus to 100,000 each year, drawing school and youth groups from throughout the Nation.

On the cornerstone of liberty, the American Village educates and inspires young people to:

    * Know America’s history — the stories of our country’s legacy of liberty and those in every generation who have secured it
    * Cherish the ideals of liberty — the founding principles on which our Nation, the Constitution, institutions of American self-government, and our civic responsibilities are based
    * Serve our country as good citizens and leaders — all as stewards of liberty

Featuring reconstructed colonial era buildings and costumed historical interpreters, this park commemorates the history of the nation’s beginnings. The 113-acre attraction includes the Washington Hall, patterned after George Washington’s Mount Vernon, a colonial courthouse and the President’s Oval Office. The village is located about 15 miles south of Birmingham in Montevallo
