The Alabama home of the commander of the Alamo. While living in this house Travis read law under The Hon. James Dellet of Claiborne, Al. In 1831, at the age of 22, he left Claiborne for Texas where he practiced law and became involved in the Texas Revolution. Travis, along with Davey Crockett, Jim Bowie and about 180 other men, were killed in March 1836 while defending the mission from Mexican forces. The house was moved from its original site in the old City of Claiborne 1 ½ miles away.

Restored by Ann & Palmer Bedsole, 1985
