1856 Antebellum Mansion
Only 20 minutes from the Montgomery Regional Airport, this beautiful old house has curb appeal. An impressive private residence in a small historic community, this home could also be used for B&B, weddings, etc. This true southern plantation home was built by cotton planter Archibald Tyson and his wife Sarah Warren Tyson, where they raised 10 children. It remained in the Tyson family well over a hundred years, and was featured in The Saturday Evening Post magazine issued June, 10, 1961 as the Tyson family ownership was nearing its end. In 1973 the Town of Lowndesboro, Alabama was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, which included "The Pillars" among the 37 historic structures listed. Major renovations were made 2010-11. Property is enhanced with azaleas, camellias, magnolias, fruit trees, pecan trees, etc. Deer and other wildlife visit daily. Agents welcome.
