1. Description

Gainesville lies on the south bank of the Tombigbee River in southwestern Alabama. It reached its zenith prior to the American Civil War; when it was an important inland port, before the wide-scale introduction of railroads.

The Gainesville Historic District is one of two historic districts in the town, the other being the Main–Yankee Street Historic District. The district is bounded by North Carolina, Church, School, Lafayette, and Webster streets. It is bisected down the center north to south by McKee Street, now overlain by Alabama Highway 39. Architectural styles present include Federal, Greek Revival, Queen Anne, and other Victorian types. The Sumter County Historical Society owns and utilizes one historic contributing property, Aduston Hall, as a welcome and visitor center for the district.
