The Alabama Women's Hall of Fame is located in
Marion, Alabama, on the campus
of Judson College in
the beautifully restored A. Howard Bean Hall.
The Alabama Women's Hall of Fame, which occupies the
main floor, was established to provide a permanent place of honor for
Alabama's most outstanding women and a place for people to visit and
learn about the significant contributions that these women have made to
our state and nation.
Visitors will have the chance to meet women from the
past--some well-known and some who have been overlooked in the history
books. Stories of Helen Adams Keller, Julia Strudwick Tutwiler, Amelia Gayle Gorgas, Tallulah
Bankhead, Mildred Westervelt Warner and others are told through portraits,
photographs, letters, and bronze plaques.
The Hall of Fame began in 1970 to honor the lives of
outstanding women from the state of Alabama. Inductees must be deceased
for two years and be from or affiliated with Alabama. Women to be
inducted are selected by unanimous vote of the board of directors of
the AWHF. The board is from a cross section of the state and represents
broad areas of interest.To nominate a woman for this honor, call (334)
683-5156 or use the printable FORM and mail to
