Description

This Federal style home with its red brick exterior was built by Judge J.J. Ormond in 1835 with bricks shipped from England. The small portico has Ionic columns rising to the second floor, Earlier a balustrade outlined the roof top of the front porch onto which the door from the upper hall opened. The balustrade was lost, but has been replaced.

The home was built with hand-hewn heart pine floors and has a hall running perpendicular into a cross hall, two handsome stairways, marble mantles, silver door knobs and plastered molding.

The house is one of several fine examples of the Federal style of architecture in Tuscaloosa. (Past Horizons, Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society, 1978)
