The McGuire Strickland         Home

The Capitol School which is  housed in the McGuire Strickland home is the oldest wooden framed home in Tuscaloosa, built about 1820. It was originally located at the corner of Greensboro Avenue and 15th Street where the historical marker now stands.

The house was built for Tuscaloosa County's first probate judge, Moses McGuire. It served as the manse for the First Presbyterian Church and was occupied by the Rev. Robert B. White from 1844 until 1866.

The house was bought by the Strickland family in 1866, and remained in the family until 1969 when it was given to the Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society.

Around 1970 the home was moved to Capitol Park where it is currently used as part of the Capitol School.
