Bagby-Liddell-Burford House

The Bagby-Liddell-Burford House in Camden, Wilcox County, was built in 1853 for former governor Arthur P. Bagby. Unable to make the payments for it, he was forced to sell the home at auction, and it was purchased by Thomas King Beck, nephew of U.S. Vice President William Rufus King. In 1932, it became the home of memoirist Viola Goode Liddell and her family and remained her home until her death in 1998. This photograph dates to 1936, when the home was documented for the federal Historic American Buildings Survey.
