The Duncan House was build in 1906 as a home place for James and Lelia Duncan and their eight children in what is now Tarrant City, Alabama. Duncan worked throughout his life in the nearby shops and yards of the L&N Railroad (know CSXI) as water boy, conductor, and yard dispatcher.

Donated to Birmingham Historic Society in 1985 by Alabama By-Products Company, Inc. (now Drummond), Duncan house was moved to its current location at Sloss Quarters, the former site of Sloss company housing, for use as offices and to interpret the city's history.

The structure is representative of housing occupied by middle management during the period when Birmingham emerged as a major industrial center.
