Brownfield House in Opelika AL
Constructed in 1850 by Dr. Robert Styles Brownfield, the home is described as transitional in style, moving away from Neo-Classical (also known as “antebellum”) toward Victorian. The house remained in the Brownfield family’s possession for nearly a century before passing out of their hands and falling into severe disrepair.
In the 1970s, the house was slated to be burned for training exercises for the Opelika Fire Department. Along with help from the city, the recently formed OHPS intervened, rescuing the house in an attempt to restore it to its former glory.
Opelika’s historic Brownfield House is now open to the public for hosting events. Maintained by the Opelika Historic Preservation Society, the house can now be used for hosting public and civic group meetings, birthday parties, weddings and more. For more information please visit the website.
