Travel Tips for Montgomery

Alabama State Capitol Building

by Stephen-KarenConn

I am keeping my tips about the State Capitol building and grounds together here in one section under "General Tips."

One of the only state capitols designated a National Historic Landmark, the Alabama State Capitol is where Jefferson Davis took the oath of office as President of the Confederate States of America and where the civil rights March ended with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivering a moving speech from the top of its steps.

The historic Senate and House of Representatives Chambers, the old Supreme Court Chambers and the original governor's office have all been restored to their Civil War-era appearance. Guided tours are available Mon. - Sat. Free Admission.

This picture of the Capitol Building was taken in early December as the State Christmas Tree was being decorated - a 30-foot red cedar harvested in Choctaw County.

Maxwell Air Force Base

by Ewingjr98

Montgomery is home to Maxwell AFB. This post houses both the Air University and Standard Systems Group. The Air University provides a spectrum of schooling for Air Force personnel including pre-commissioning education, professional military education, and college degree programs. These schools include Air War College; Air Command and Staff College; Squadron Officer College; College of Aerospace Doctrine, Research and Education; Ira C. Eaker College for Professional Development; School for Advanced Air and Space Studies, Air Force Officer Accession and Training Schools; Community College of the Air Force.

The Wright brothers established the first U.S. civilian flying school in Montgomery in 1910. By the 1920s, Montgomery became an important link in the growing system of aerial mail service. In the early 1930s, the Army Air Corps Tactical School moved to Maxwell and Montgomery became the country's intellectual center for airpower education. Air University was established in 1946 and continues to educate U.S. and allied military planners and leaders in air and space warfare.

Across town at Maxwell's Gunter Annex you might stumble across Standard Systems Group. Though it is part of MAxwell AFB, it has a distinctly different mission. Rather than education, SSG focuses mainly on software development for the AF. SSG has some 800 military members and 600 Civil Service employees, plus countless contractors.
