McKibbon House is a classic house in Montevallo, famous for it's characteristic architecture and history serving as both a private residence and Inn. Originally built for Robert Fulton McKibbon around the turn of the 20th century, the house has outlived many similar Victorian buildings. In recent years the house has functioned as McKibbon Bed and Breakfast, though it remains unclear what purpose the house will serve in the future.
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."
