History

With the purchase of the Ordeman House in 1967, the Landmarks Foundation and City of Montgomery cemented a unique partnership that has resulted in the restoration and interpretation of over 50 authentically restored 19th and early 20th century structures stretching along six blocks in downtown historic Montgomery.

Since opening to the public in 1971, the Ordeman House has become the nucleus around which Landmarks' Old Alabama Town has grown. Through this historic village, guests are able to view authentically restored and furnished buildings reflecting the lives of the people who built Central Alabama. Our historic properties include:

Ware-Farley-Hood House

Southern Elegance for Your Next Event 

 

From the 1850s to the 1950s, the families of a wealthy planter, a successful banker, and a prominent newspaper man entertained the city folk of Montgomery. Gala soirees, fetes, and back-room business and political deals took place under the graceful cupola adorning the Ware-Farley-Hood House on overlooking the town.

 

Now, 25 years after its relocation to 450 North Hull Street in Old Alabama Town, the beautifully restored Italianate mansion opens its doors once again for entertaining!
