Addie Price Home


Addie Price, a widow with three children, built this home at 185 West Diagonal Street during the 1880s. Described as having "considerable means," Addie spared no expense when she installed the popular bay window in the parlor and fireplaces in each of the downstairs rooms. Not only that, Addie also built a porch across both the front and the back of her house, a desirable feature of a Dixie home before the advent of air conditioning. As a result, Addie's home became the hot spot for youth gatherings in St. George.
