The NeighborhoodCottage Hill is a historic neighborhood located just a few minutes walk from downtown Montgomery. Many of the houses were built in the late 1800's to early 1900's, making it the oldest neighborhood in Montgomery. The neighborhood hosts several events annually, including a Candlelight Tour in December and a Halloween Festival.
Most of the houses are simple framed structures with an unassuming amount of Victorian detail. Two of the most prominent house types in the area are the five bay facade, central hall plan with a low hipped or gabled roof, characteristic of the mid-century structures. More common is the irregularly massed, frame home with a front porch abutting a gabled bay or front room.
Cottage Hill takes its name from the first public school opened in the district in 1891. Though the structure was refurbished many times from its original small red school house, the school itself remained open until 1963.
As Montgomery moved toward the suburbs during the 1950's and 1960's, the houses of the Cottage Hill district deteriorated and the area was slated to become an industrial warehouse area. The district experienced a revival in the 1970's when several homes were purchased by enterprising individuals with a vision of what Cottage Hill could become again. This core group has led many of the efforts to preserve and restore much of the neighborhood’s irreplaceable architecture. Due to their dedication, hard work, and perseverance, the Cottage Hill neighborhood has become a great place to live and work.
Cottage Hill was placed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage in 1975 and the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Getting AroundWe know that you may have already planned your trip itinerary, but we have compiled the list below for your convenience.
