If you love that Southern vintage look, you’re going to die over this historic home! The home was originally built in 1882 as only a 4-room cabin. However, when Charles Swift and his wife bought the home a few years later, he expanded it to 16 rooms. In the 1970s, the home was purchased by a restauranteur and antiques dealer based out of Gulf Shores, Nik Coles, who restored the home and completed it with antiques from his personal collection. Talk about being packed full of local history! It’s even listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Just think of the photos with this home in the background!
