KING-CRISWELL-GARRETT HOME, MONROE COUNTY
King-Criswell-Garrett Home in Monroe County was built in the late 1850s by William ‘Dock’ King, who was the nephew of the only US Vice President to hail from Alabama! When the Civil War broke out, the plans for the grand mansion were scaled back a great deal, but nevertheless, it is still said to have the broadest facade of an Alabama plantation home.
About 100 years after it was built, it was purchased by former state legislator Eugene Garrett and moved to its current location is Uriah. It is privately owned, but one former owner claims that an evil entity was attacking her and she feared for her life. The paranormal show ‘The Dead Files’ once featured the home on their show.
