The former home of William Brockman Bankhead, a speaker at the United States House of Representatives, the Bankhead House and Heritage Center is a stunning example of Colonial Revival architecture. The three-story colonial house has since been restored by the Walker Area Community Foundation. Most of the artifacts in the house belonged to the Bankheads including a desk from the Alabama legislature. Take a walk back in time with a visit here. The house is open for tours from Tuesdays to Fridays between 10:00a and 4:00p, and every third Saturday between 10:00a and 2:00p. Admission is free.
