A Charming, Not-So-Little Old House Mar 19, 2008
The house is gorgeous – it’s a typical Antebellum house with great pillars at the entrance leading to the front door, two staircases leading up to the second floor on both side of the outside of the house, and the room division inside the house.

Gorgas House is one of the few buildings that survived the destruction of the town of Tuscaloosa, the campus of the University of Alabama in particular, during the Civil War. The house belongs to the Gorgas family who lived there for some time in the late 1800s.

The house has been a place for boarders to stay, a dining hall, and a faculty residence. The front yard of the house is decorated with nature’s best plantation. Huge magnolia trees surrounded the house. The entrance gates, which are on the left and the right side of the house are arched with a pergola-like construction climbed by a mass of flowers.

In the spring time, they give a mean red bloom around the gate. At the back of the house, there is a small outdoor place to sit down – a good place to read a book or take a break from walking the dog. The back door and the back gate complete the 360 tour of the house.

Today the house is one of the Tuscaloosa’s great attractions.
