This National Historic Landmark eloquently tells a story of struggle and achievement. It was the residence of Alonzo Herndon, who overcame slavery, sharecropping and Jim Crow to become one of the foremost African-American businessmen of his era. The 15-room beau arts classical style home was built in 1910 and is an example of upper income dwellings in the early 1900s. The interior draws upon various design traditions, including Renaissance Revival forms in the reception hall and dining room and Rococo detailing in the music room. Herndon Home is owned and operated by the Alonzo F. and Norris B. Herndon Foundation. Tours are offered at the top of the hour with the last tour at 3 p.m.

Closed New Year's Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
