Ready for Repurposing

C.H. McLendon Home | Russell County ALabama| c. 1870

This home is featured in one of my favorite Southern History books, Silent in the Land. It was built in 1870 by C.H. McClendon who farmed the surrounding lands all his life. 

It sat empty for many years but upon my first visit in November 2016, I was greeted by the owner who was doing work on the property. He shared with me that he was restoring the home to prepare for an upcoming family wedding. He was kind enough to allow us to tour the home and take our time capturing the place.

It was one of the most memorable exploring adventures I've had to date and I can't wait to return to see the progress!
