The dilapidated remains of the Fambro Arthur home are pictured, Feb. 7, 2015, in Orrville, Alabama. The wooden frame cottage was built in the 1840’s and was more typical of the average person’s house in the antebellum era. Besides the slave quarters at Kirk-View mansion, the Fambro Arthur home is the only remaining structure on the grounds of Old Cahawba Archaeological Park. It is considered “at risk” by the Alabama Historical Commission, which is seeking funds to restore it. Cahaba, also known as “Old Cahawba,” was Alabama’s state capital from 1819-1826 but was abandoned after the Civil War. It is now considered a ghost town. It is located in Dallas County near Selma, Alabama. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
