This 1834 Italianized home was built by Mr. William Sayre as his primary residence. Sayre, served as an early City Councilman, two term Mayor, and helped build the railroad linking Montgomery with Mobile. Prior to 1861, consecutive owners were instrumental in building the gas company, icehouse, Montgomery’s banking system, and an owner of one of Montgomery’s Iron Works factories. These owners were instrumental in modernizing Montgomery into a bustling Antebellum City by 1861.
