One worried historic preservationist (Marilyn Sullivan) and one old-house-loving REALTOR (Sandra Nickel) got together to brainstorm how to save one wonderful old house downtown (Brittain-Dennis cottage, now a fully restored and leased property in Old Alabama Town) and create positive buzz about Montgomery’s historic neighborhoods. As a result, the Montgomery Old House Expo was born.
