|About||Follow partners Michael and Jerett on an adventurous journey of restoring an 1887 Victorian house known as the Moody Mansion in Historic Bessemer, Alabama.|
Built in 1887 by Wm Meade Montgomery, this historic home in Bessemer, AL was owned by Bessemer Weekly Editor Wm HH Judson and passed down through his heirs, including son-in-law and Bank President Lee Moody, between 1895-1964.
Known as the Judson-Moody House, and commonly referred to as "The Moody Mansion", this home is rumored to be one of the most haunted 19th Century homes in the state. In fact, since we have owned it, the house has been investigated by several entities and labeled "bustling with activity" and "one of the most active houses [they] have ever seen."
Follow us on our journey via this page as we bring it from a crying old lady to something more. The state of our purchase included 58 broken windows, no heating and cooling, 19 fallen ceilings, a giant hole in the kitchen floor, no shower in the house, 672,311 nails in the plaster, 33 leaks in the roof, and fallen porch, and 67 open bibles (to ward off the spirits). The grandeur is beginning to return, but it will be a long process. We are loving every project and are trying to do everything that we can ourselves and "the right way."
We will take several photos along the way and upload those here. Wish us luck and we hope to have you visit soon!
