Built between 1845 and 1850 in the Greek Revival style, Arlington predates the founding of Birmingham in 1871. The city’s only antebellum home, the mansion is fully restored and contains a fine collection of antiques and decorative arts including 19th century furniture, textiles, silver and paintings. During the Civil War, Arlington Antebellum home was spared from destruction when Union troops used the home as headquarters while they planned the burning of the University of Alabama. Open Tuesday- Saturday, 10am- 4pm; Sunday, 1pm- 4pm (tickets sold until 3pm). Admission.
