1. Judge William S. Mudd’s wife, Florence Earle, was daughter of Dr. Samuel S. Earle who came with his wife from South Carolina to Elyton about 1823-24 – very prominent family in Elyton, and later in Birmingham.

  2. What a magnificient piece of history this home is. I hope it is always preserved for future
    history buffs to enjoy.

  3. I was married & had our reception here. So lovely.

  4. Beautiful place. I haven’t been there in almost 30 years when I used the venue for a work related event. Would so love to see it again.

  5. We go to Arlington every year for the Christmas open house.

  6. Lived in Bham for the first 35 years of my life and only visited this place twice: as a youngster with out-of-town visiting relatives and as a wedding guest when my 6th grade teacher married there. I think it’s time for another visit!!

  7. When I was in high school in the late-60’s I volunteered as a costumed docent at Arlington. My mother made me a summer and winter dress and I worked as much as Mrs. Lackmond would allow. It’s the best job I ever had!

  8. I know I’m never going to be able to get there to see this beautiful presentation but you know one thing I could have read it but you kept putting this confounded thing up about the email stuff you know can you let people just enjoy reading about the beautiful place thank you for sharing that one picture with me have a blessed day
