April 15th, 2018 Meeting

The next Chilton County Historical Society meeting will be Sunday, April 15th, at 2:00 pm at the
Senior Connections building. 

Our speaker will be Alabama historian Jim Phillips. His talk is entitled “Lost and Found Treasures” with extra information on "Old Maplesville."

Mr. Phillips is known for his presentations and videography on such topics as Alabama antebellum history, southern aviation, Sloss Furnaces, Birmingham-Southern, county histories, D-Day, and even ghost stories. He is a collector of old bottles, coins, and at this time especially old store tokens.

If you have any old store tokens, feel free to bring them!

You might be familiar with Mr. Phillips’ brother, Dr. Doug Phillips, a naturalist who hosts Discovering Alabama on Alabama Public Television.

Note!  Our meetings are open to the public and we would like to see you there!
