The Young - Dent Home

Marker Front:
Built between 1856 and 1860 by Edward Brown Young and his wife, Ann Fendall Beall, this was one of the first of the great Italianate style homes constructed in Eufaula. It later became the home of the builders' daughter, Anna Beall Young, and her husband, Stouten Hubert Dent. The Dents renovated the house in the 1880s in the styles and colors then popular, and hired a Mr. LaFranc to stencil and paint the ceilings and walls of the hall, parlor, and dining room. These three rooms are the finest examples of this work surviving in Alabama and compare favorably with any in the country. Among the other unique original features of the house were the black and white marble floored entrance hall and the plumbing system, which was fed by attic cisterns.

After having served as a home for five generations of Youngs and their descendants, the property was acquired by the Alabama Historical Commission in 1973.

Entered on the National Register of Historic Places 28 July 1970.

Marker Reverse:
Edward Brown Young, a native of New York City, and his wife, Ann Fendall Beall, of Warren County, Georgia, settled in Eufaula in 1837 where he began a career as a banker, merchant, and entrepreneur. Young organized the company which built the first bridge across the Chattahoochee River at Eufaula, founded successful banks and other commercial enterprises, and served as first chairman of the trustees of Union Female College. He also sponsored the change of the town's name from Irwinton to its original Creek name of Eufaula.
