Regarding Clyde Carter House. Excerpts from the National Register nomination:
Built in 1924, the Clyde Carter House is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places based on Criterion C in the area of architecture as an example of a Spanish Eclectic cottage. The style is rare in the North Alabama region and a modern anomaly of metropolitan life in its agrarian setting.
The Clyde Carter House is also eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places based on Criterion A in the area of agriculture as an intact example of a small farm from 15-25 acres in size and family owned. Clyde Carter farmed the Carter farm from 1930 until the mid-fifties with crops of cotton and corn. These crops are still farmed today on the same land.
