Built in 1822 by William Montgomery, Buena Vista is a historic Federal style plantation house originally built in 1822. It is one of the early examples of elegant plantation homes constructed in central Alabama. In fact many of the materials used to build the home were made in Birmingham, England, such as the plaster cornice moldings. Today, Buena Vista is operated as a house museum by the Autauga County Heritage Association, and is also available to rent for weddings and other events. It was added to National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
