By the 1860s, the Italianate style had become more popular in the United States than Greek revival. With its wide eaves, brackets, and veranda, Fendall Hall was one of the first great Italianate style homes built in Alabama. Fendall Hall's most striking interior features are the notable and elaborate wall and ceiling murals in the entrance hall, parlor, and dining room.

The house is noted not only for its beauty, but also functionality. An ornamental medallion ceiling grille on the second floor allowed air flow to the cupola facilitating ventilation. Water from a cistern in the attic once fed the house's indoor plumbing system - among the first in the state.

The first floor of the house and restrooms are accessible to individuals with physical disabilities. A lift from the ground to the porch is available. If you have questions or if you anticipate special assistance, please contact us at 334-687-8469 of
