Thirty-two years ago, 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.

Homes will be open from 1:00 - 5:00 pm. If you are looking to buy a Montgomery home or are an old home lover, this is one event you won't want to miss.

Garden District

Elegant, classic, stately:  just a few of the words that one could use to describe the 4 bed, 4 bath home at 1733 South Perry Street in the sought after Garden District of Montgomery. This one boasts very high ceilings, gorgeous mill work, hard wood floors, huge rooms and all of that "old house charm" you could ask for. It is completely functional, but the owner has left you a little room to make it your own too. The garage is very large and you can actually park your cars in it because there is a floored walk up attic for storage. The back yard is wonderful for parties and has loads of room for gardening too. The underground sprinkler will make it easy to keep it looking lush and green. Heat pumps keep your utilities low and the owner has worked hard to maintain and upgrade the major systems and appliances in the last few years.
