Description

This house, built in 1849 and demolished in 1907, was located on the site the Tuscaloosa County Court House that was completed in 1908. There was electricity at this time; see the pole in front of the house. However, the streets are still unpaved.

The barn to the right became the site of the County Jail. The house to the left, the E.N.C. Snow House, built around 1830, and located at 2414 8th Street, was demolished in 1958 to make way for the construction of the new Tuscaloosa County Court House that opened in 1964.

The high board fence in the rear was said to be peppered with the bullets of the Federal soldiers on April 3, 1865.
