303 S Court St, Talladega, AL, 35160. $75.000
Save this old house. Built in 1898, this home is a 2-story brick home with front-gabled roof, segmented arched windows, bracketed cornice and classical door surround. It is located in Talladega’s Silk Stocking Historic District, the finest remaining collection of upper and middle class home built in Talladega between 1875 and 1917. Most of the brick homes constructed in the late 19th century in the district were built by Lyman Clardy, owner of the local brick yard, so it is highly likely he built today’s featured home.
This was the home of Dr. Stodghill and his wife Imogene in the 1920s and ’30s. Dr. Stodghill was the minister at the Baptist church, and he rented some rooms of the house to lodgers. The house was worth $5,000 in 1930. Later, Judge William “Hank” Fannin (1933-2018) used 303 S. Coury St. as his law office.

He served in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955 as a paratrooper in the airborne division. He graduated from Jacksonville State University In 1960. He graduated from the Birmingham School of Law in 1964. He was the first Assistant District Attorney hired by Talladega County. He was appointed Judge of Talladega in 1984. He was a member of the Alabama State Bar for fifty years.”
