AAA Editor Notes
The American Village is at 3727 SR 119. Located on 188 acres of rolling pasture 30 minutes south of Birmingham, the education institute focuses on building good citizens and instilling what George Washington called “the sacred fire of liberty.” Visitors are ushered through the power and drama of America's journey for independence, liberty and self-government with immersive and engaging experiences. Costumed interpreters portray George and Martha Washington, Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Phillis Wheatley, Abigail Adams and other historical figures from the era.

The campus includes Washington Hall, inspired by Washington’s Mount Vernon; a Colonial-style courthouse; replicas of the Oval Office and East Room of the White House; a Colonial chapel inspired by Bruton Parish Church of Williamsburg; a replica Concord Bridge; a restored barn; and the National Veterans Shrine and Register of Honor, patterned after Carpenters Hall.

The West Wing of Independence Hall, offers a multisensory experience and original film, “Choosing to be an American People.” Viewers move from the Boston Massacre, the protest of the Stamp Act and the Boston Tea Party, to Paul Revere’s Ride and the “Shot Heard ’Round the World,” on through the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the resulting American Revolutionary War.

Educational programs, adult walking tours and seasonal events are available. Special celebrations are held on Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, July 4 and Veterans Day.

Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.
