      The Battle-Friedman House was built in 1835 by the Battle family, who owned several plantations. They lived here for nearly 40 years, then lost the house due to foreclosure. It was then purchased by the Freidman family, who lived here for almost a century. A fine example of an antebellum town house, the mansion is noted among other things for its distinctive boxed columns, and for having on its grounds the only authentic antebellum gardens in Alabama. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places, the house is open for public tours. This is one of several historic properties maintained by the Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society.
