Blackford-Gray House, 1883, Graysville

This Queen Anne home was built by Dr. William T. Blackford (1825-1904) in 1883. For many years, Dr. Blackford maintained his medical practice here, as well. A native Virginian, Dr. Blackford served as a delegate to the Alabama Constitutional Convention of 1867, then practiced medicine in Chattanooga before settling in Graysville. Charles A. Gray (1860-1960), a member of the founding family of Graysville, purchased the house from Dr. Blackford’s daughters in 1916. It remained in the Gray family until 1942. It has had numerous owners in the years since.
