**** THIS HOME IS ON 3.28.2020 HISTORICAL SOCIETY'S TOUR OF HOMES **** An excellent example of Greek Revival, the Franklin King Beck house, once known as the Beck-Darwin home, is thought to have a Pre-Civil War construction date of ca.1832. The home, was once owned by the grand-daughter of the first Federal Judge of Alabama, Martha Tait, and wife of Franklin King Beck, a delegate to the Alabama Secession Convention and Colonel during the Civil War, commanding the 23rd Alabama Infantry against U.S. Grant's Union troops. After the war, the home suffered years of neglect, but was renovated in 1966, by Mr. and Mrs. W.N. Darwin to it's current footprint, rather than it's original Gulf Coast five-part styled home. Today this property has a primary home with 3 Bedrooms and 2 1/2 Baths, Formal Living and Dining Room, Kitchen and Breakfast, with large Gathering Room at the top of the staircase. A part of the original house was moved during renovation and is now a 1 bedroom, 2 Bathroom Guest House that's absolutely adorable and perfect for any visitor. Having undergone recent upgrades and repairs by it's current owners, the home is ready for it's new owner!!! But there's even more - This listing includes a number of parcels. There are joining parcels - a vacant 1/2 acre parcel, a parcel with a 1300+ fixer home, and a vacant lot on the corner of Scout Street and Clifton Street. Also, included are two parcels totaling 3+ acres across Clifton Street. There's no way to list all that's offered for you at this wonderful property, with lovely Mantels, Fireplaces, Wide Moldings, Original Wood Flooring, traditional features, and so much history!
