Historical Homes

While driving around the Millbrook area you are bound to see some of the area’s most beautiful plantation style homes.  Some of the best-known historical homes include the following: Millbrook’s history began around 1818 when Bolling Hall, a friend of William Wyatt Bibb, built Ellerslie, the first permanent home in the area.  This one and a half story house with large verandas was the first to have glass windowpanes in the Alabama territory.  Archibald McKeithen built Thornfield; the areas second permanent home.  Today, this home is hidden by trees with no part visible from the road except the stone columns that mark the entrance where a sign bears its name.  The Elms, built in 1836 by Absalom Jackson, is the largest remaining home of that era still standing today.  The home is two-story with Egyptian and Greek architectural influences.  The Elms operated as a cotton plantation for 100 years and covered 16,000 acres.  Across the street from The Elms is the Jackson-Marvel house, the house dates back to 1890 and has been fully restored.  These homes are not open to the public.
