More about this marker. This photo was taken during the Alabama Historical Association's Fall meeting and tour of the University of Montevallo in 2014. Unfortunately the University has announced plans to tear down Jeter Hall to erect a hotel. Hopefully the University will change its decision or at least the front of the historic building and marker will be incorporated into the hotel.
Regarding Alabama Historical Association. Alabama College was renamed the University of Montevallo in 1969. The marker is on Jeter Hall which was erected in 1915, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The University of Montevallo has announced plans to tear down Jeter Hall but it hopefully will survive to celebrate its 100th anniversary next year.
