Architecture notebook 57: Cox-Hilson House, or the Cox-Hilson-Whitten House, at 311 Lincoln St., Huntsville, Alabama.

Description

Cox House, also known as Cox-Whitten-Hilson home, built in 1826, in the large, symmetrical antebellum style for Joshua Cox. This house has 14 and 16 foot high ceilings, contributing to its nickname of the "Spite House" since the unusually high ceilings resulted in the owners spiteful wish to block the Leroy Pope house. It was later used as apartments. Located at 311 Lincoln St., Huntsville, Alabama.
