The Charles Gunn House is one of the few remaining Late Victorian houses in Gadsden. It was built by Edward Tracy Hollingsworth who was a successful merchant and banker. Upon advice from his doctor, he moved to Oklahoma for health reasons and sold the house to Charles Logan Dunn in 1901. Dunn's daughter was the last person in the family to live there and bequeathed it to the city in 1990. The city restored it with the help of donations from citizens and local organizations. It is available to rent for meetings, weddings, and other events.
Edward Tracy Hollingsworth's lineage goes back to Valentine Hollingsworth, who sailed in 1692 with his family from Ireland to what was then the New World.
