Georgia Cottage

Georgia Cottage in Mobile was built in 1840 by Col. John Murrell for his daughter. Located on SpringHill Avenue, it is notable for having been the home of Hortense Addison Batré, founder of the Alabama chapter of the National Society of Colonial Dames in America, and two Alabama authors: Augusta Jane Evans Wilson, who purchased the home with earnings from her novels, and Eugene B. Sledge during his childhood. The Greek Revival home was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
