Built by Hugh McElderry for Probate Judge William Thornton, the elaborate trim work in the Carpenter's Gothic home exhibits well-executed craftmanship. When the Union Army under Gen John Croxton was passing through Talladega, Judge Thornton persuated the General to extinguish fires set in the courthouse by giving him a Masonic sign.
