Alabama was granted statehood on December 14th, 1819, making it the 22nd state in the United States.

However, the oldest building still in existence in Alabama was constructed more than a decade before the Alabama territory would become a state.

The house has been moved from its original location, but it still stands strong today.

The Joel Eddins House was built between 1808 and 1810 near present-day Ardmore in Limestone County.

The exterior of the house is constructed of solid chinked logs. The home sits on stone piers and features two stone-clad brick chimneys.

The house was moved from its original location in Ardmore to Burritt on the Mountain a living history site and museum situated on Round Top Mountain overlooking the city of Huntsville.

This is where it stands today at over 200 years old and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
