Sunset- BONUS

624 1st St S
Circa 1906

The original 1906 house, built by the Smith family, was quite small. Later, it was used as a physician’s office and home. Additions and renovations in the 1920s, 1950s, and 2000 added and later enhanced the Colonial Revival architectural style. The charm of this house is enhanced by the fact that it is one of only three houses in the city that sit on the bluff of the Tombigbee River. Owners Fred Kinder and Ralph Null are renowned for their advocacy of the arts, tireless work to promote Columbus, and love of travel. The home contains eclectic collections, including one with thousands of Santa Claus figures.

The Stone Hotel- BONUS

224 5th St S
Circa 1905

Originally two hotels in downtown Columbus, The Stone and The Arcade, the buildings were sold in the 1940s to the grandfather of Columbus businesswoman Susan Mackay. The property has been used since for retail businesses and apartments. Purchased by de la Tour Holdings of New Orleans and renovated by Columbian Chris Chain in 2022, the buildings now house retail spaces and 18 luxury residences. The Stone Hotel with its grand foyer and staircase joins the 180 apartments already located in downtown Columbus, creating a vibrant rejuvenation for the entire area.

Aldan Hall

901 7th Ave N
Circa 1840

Built by lawyer John Shelby Topp, the house originally was a Federal structure of two rooms over two with a central stair hall. The transom and sidelights around the double front doors upstairs and down could be removed easily to facilitate air circulation. Planter James Sykes bought the house in 1854, enlarged it, and added the Greek Revival portico with two fluted octagonal columns. The tour features a Civil War diary and a Brilliant Period Cut Glass collection of distinction. The home was lovingly restored in the 1980s by the late Allen Wayne Bryan and updated in 2020 by his wife Betty.
