Battle-Friedman House

Search Tuscaloosa Alabama

Built in the late 1830s by Alfred Battle, the Battle-Friedman house in Tuscaloosa has remained as one of the finest examples of antebellum architecture in Alabama, but not until 1987, when an elaborate garden design was uncovered on the grounds, was the homes grandeur fully realized. The Battle-Friedman garden is the oldest documented garden in Alabama.

Location: Greensboro Ave, Tuscaloosa Alabama Telephone 205-758-6138
