The Alabama Girl?s Industrial School, now more commonly known as the University of Montevallo, is a historic site in Montevallo, Alabama. It is a university campus that started out in 1896.

The Alabama Girl?s Industrial School began in the late 1800s as a technical school with high school level courses for women. In 1911, it became the Alabama Girls? Technical Institute and then the Alabama Girls' Technical Institute and College for Women in 1919. It gradually became a traditional degree-granting institution so it became Alabama College State College for Women in 1923. It became co-educational in 1956 as the Alabama College and then by 1969, a year after it was desegregated, it was renamed as the University of Montevallo.

Most of the buildings in the site predate the school. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 as a Historic District.
