Description

The McEachin-Little House is a square two-story structure with center end chimney and hip roof. A hall separates four rooms downstairs and the second story has the same plan.

Originally, there were 16 bracketed posts of wood, with banisters between, across the porch. There were banisters at the top of the porch, also a banistered balcony hung above the porch. The kitchen was in the yard away from the house. This structure was at one time the home of Julia Tutwiler.

In 1919, when Richard Little bought the property, the banistered porch and balcony were removed. A portico with four Doric posts were added at the entrance and a porch was constructed on the north side of the house.

There are nine windows across the front of the house and eight of these are two-sashed and six-paned. The front door, under a French Gothic arch, has a square transom and side lights. The floors are wide planked. ("Past Horizons," Tuscaloosa Preservation Society, 1978)
