The Bothwell-Embry House is a two-story, wood frame, three-bay wide Federal house with exterior chimneys at the gable ends and a central, two-story columned portico.
The Bothwell –Embry House is architecturally significant as one of the finest remaining early houses in Ashville, AL. Constructed in 1835 as single-pile, Plantation Plain type structure with Federal Period refinements, it has been expanded in several phases (1852, 1882, 1917) and each phase has retained its period integrity. The 1852 additions, which consisted of a dining and kitchen wing and a back porch, were the work of Richard A. Crow, a master builder, who also probably worked with the original builder as a young man. The house is particularly noted for its portico and robust parlor mantel designed in the 18th-century neoclassical Style of the Adams Brothers.
Local History: The home is associated with Dr. James J. Bothwell, a locally noted physician and politician. Bothwell, the town’s second physician, also served first as the Clerk of the Circuit Court.
