1. Ordeman House Museum Marker
Inscription. Built on this site by architect Charles Ordeman in 1852-1853, this upscale townhouse exemplifies the newly fashionable Italianate style, with its bracketed overhanging roof cornice and asymmetric door placement. A showcase for modern design in its day, the house includes a fully furnished basement, a well deep enough for mild refrigeration, closets, and possibly the first indoor bathroom in Montgomery.

The house became home to cotton planters, doctors, and merchants, including the Mitchell, Jones, and Shaw families.
