McKibbon House is the finest surviving example of Victorian architecture in Montevallo, complete with the signature "haphazard" geometric look that has become emblematic of a bygone era.

Backstory and Context
Since 1978, the house has secured a spot on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage and since 2001 it's been on the National Register of Historic Places. Though in 1979, the house was accordingly shrouded with asbestos, it functioned successfully as a Bed and Breakfast for many years. Famed local photographer and author, Mike Mahan, cites the house as being part of his roots in his book "No Hill Too High for a Stepper."
