description

Summary

Significance: The Boykin House is a good example of a double-pen (two-room) house, one of the basic house types of rural Alabama. Prior to 1940, two additions were made at the rear. Dismantled, moved and reconstructed around 1940, it served as the dwelling for the Boykins, a black family who owned and farmed the land from about 1940 to 1975.
