The President's Mansion, southern style
This is the President's Mansion at the University of Alabama, built between 1831-1841.
The UA's website tour says,
"According to tradition, Louisa Frances Garland, wife of president Landon C. Garland, valiantly saved the stately residence from destruction when Union troops destroyed the campus in April 4, 1865. The mansion, which has undergone a number of restorations, assumed its predominately white appearance in 1908."
