    What kind of town is Marion?

    • AvatarThadaB says: 2 comments

      Well, others have answered part of this question. I grew up in the Birmingham area and I have the impression that Marion is a very conservative, quintessentially “Southern” town and all that that entails. I doubt I could put up with its political atmosphere, but there are lots of lovely houses if that’s what you’re seeking…

        Well, I’d love to retire to a small, sleepy southern town with beautiful architecture but I wouldn’t want to choose a town that is going in the wrong direction. It looks like the three closest schools are rated 1 out of 10 points, so that’s concerning. I don’t know what that indicates about the town in general.

    The Children’s play house with the flag sold me!

    The house seems to have pre-dated the Victorian era although many of the (Carpenter Gothic) porch details are similar to those found on early Gothic and Italianate style homes which were just beginning to appear (mainly on the Eastern Seaboard) in the mid-1840’s. The small diameter newel post is consistent with Greek Revival homes from this period. If the double galleried porches were a slightly later addition then its possible this house had more of a Greek Revival look originally. Not that any of that matters, some modernization has occurred in more recent years so the house remains a blend of newer and older details. I’ve always like double-decker (double gallery) porches with frilly scroll work or cast iron as seen in New Orleans and this one doesn’t disappoint. The house also appears to sit on a generous lot and comes with a playhouse for the kids. It looks to be move in ready so it will not need months or years of restoration work to be completed.

      If you paint the wrought iron black and the body a vibrant color and hang ferns on the porch, you would think it was from New Orleans. It is a shame that the outside is a monochromatic white while the interior has some great splashes of color. I know that Mobile AL has some New Orleans type houses so maybe someone liked the design and moved the style farther north.

    I taught at the jr. high and high school in Marion for 25 years. The antebellum courthouse sits upon a traditional courthouse square. Brick churches line Main Street and the churches are active. The town has many beautiful homes that predate the 1860’s. Also there is Judson Baptist College for girls and Marion Military Institute ( now state supported and coed ). The town is about an hour from Tuscaloosa and about 30 minutes from Selma and 1 1/2 hours south of Birmingham. If you are looking for a true Old South southern town, this is it. Marion holds a Christmas home tour each year.

    This is an absolutely beautiful house in a beautiful town. Marion is famous for its colleges: Judson College (5th oldest college for women in the nation and Marion Military Institute (MMI) which is the oldest military junior college in the nation. MMI is known as the West Point of Alabama.
