Johnston-Curtright House-Tuskegee, Alabama

Built around 1850 in the heart of Tuskegee for Burr Johnston, a local lawyer and a delegate to the Alabama Constitutional Convention, the home has fallen into significant disrepair. At the time of construction, Johnston held 67 men, women, and children in bondage, so some likely helped build this Greek Revival.

The faded sign in the center indicates that the house was in the process of restoration, but it was never completed. The back side of the house has completely caved in, and the entire house is now open to the elements.

Callaway-Vernon House-Tuskegee, Alabama

The Greek Revival Callaway-Vernon Home was built in 1842. It is a contributing property to other North Main Historic District.

This is a photo from the 1985 National Register of Historic Places application. The home was built by Dr. James Wesley Hunter in 1842. Based on the map from the application, and the yard in the current photo, I am positive this house was moved to make way for a new school.

Judge William Varner House-Tuskegee, Alabama

This Greek Revival cottage was built in 1853. Oddly, the information on this house is remarkably scant. The last homeowner seems to be Judge William Varner. He is the grandson of William Varner, the founder and first owner of Grey Columns.

In 2005, it was placed on Alabama’s Places in Peril.
