Montgomery in Montgomery County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Alabama Governor's Mansion
In 1950, Gov. Jim Folsom favored buying a Neo-Classical Revival mansion six blocks south. This residence, designed by architect Weatherly Carter in 1907 for Adjutant General Robert Fulwood Ligon, was regarded as "one of Montgomery's finest homes." A state commission purchased the 17-room residence from the Ligon heirs for $100,000.
