Hurtsboro Historic District listed to the National Register

Press Release

MONTGOMERY, AL- The Hurtsboro Historic District was listed to the National Register of Historic Places in October.

The Hurtsboro Historic District is comprised of a collection of buildings dating from the mid-19th century up through the early 1950s.  Taken as a group, these resources illustrate small town development in east central Alabama.  There are a number of Greek Revival houses in the district, including two antebellum residences, the Joel Hurt House and the Nimrod Washington Long House.  The most prominent commercial building is the two-story Owens Mercantile Block built on Main Street c. 1910.  The earliest, extant industrial building is the Hurtsboro Gin and Mill Building which dates from the 1890s.  Also included in the district are the Art Deco style Farmers and Merchants Bank, the Neoclassical Revival First Baptist Church (1873) and the late Victorian Gothic Hurtsboro Methodist Church (1906).

The National Register of Historic Places is a program of the National Park Service and is the nation's official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation.

To protect, preserve, and interpret Alabama's historic places is the mission of the Alabama Historical Commission, the State Historic Preservation Office.
