The mission of the Bankhead House & Heritage Center is to be a place where people from all walks of life whether residents, artists, historians or tourists gather to experience a diverse range of exhibits and events with a focus on art, history plays, concerts and culture showcasing our community’s many talents, history and future.
The home was built in approximately 1925 and is a great example of Colonial Revival architecture. It was the home of William Brockman Bankhead, the 47th Speaker of the US House of Representatives and the father of renowned actress Tallulah Bankhead, who was married in the house on August 31, 1937.
The house has been lovingly restored and in 2010 opened as a Heritage Center.
