Local historian will give lecture on Battle of Ebenezer Church


April 12, 2015 Meeting

The next meeting will be April 12th at 2:00 pm at the Chilton/Clanton library. 

  • History of the Walker - Klinner House and Farm

Our speaker will be John Killiner who will present the history of the Walker-Klinner House. John is the owner of this house and also the man who registered the property with the National Register of Historic Places.

This 1,600 acre property was originally surveyed in the mid 1850s and the Eastlake style house was built in 1890. The property also contains a cemetery, a store, an overseer's house, tenant houses and general farm structures. It has been run as a farm for a continuous 135 years.

We hope to see you there!
