Sunny Slope; Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
Built circa 1857, Sunny Slope was the childhood home of Governor William James Samford. Sunny Slope was originally a 2,500-acre plantation and served as a Confederate encampment and training ground during the Civil War. The 14th and 18th Regiments of Alabama Volunteers were formed at the home and the site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The home was renovated in 2015 and currently houses the offices of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Auburn University.
The former pre-Civil War plantation is now home to an educational program for adults operated by Auburn University
