The Pillars is a Greek Revival Antebellum plantation home that was built in 1857 by Mr. Archibald Tyson a cotton planter that moved from North Carolina to the rich fertile Black Belt soils of Lowndesboro in the early 1850s. The house is a two story heart pine wood frame construction with two large columned porticos. One entrance faces west which is supported by six fluted Doric columns and the other faces south with four fluted Doric columns. Both columned porticos have an up stairs small balustrade balcony. The house has 12/ft ceiling downstairs and 14/ft ceilings upstairs with its original 12 pane windows and wooden storm shutters and beautiful heart pine floors. The rear of the house has a large screened in porch, car port, swimming pool and several period matching outbuildings that include a workshop, storage room and pool house with bath. The southern charm landscaping around the stately home place consists of multiple flower beds, box woods, camellias, azaleas, crape myrtles, magnolias, numerous fruit trees, large Spanish moss draped oaks and pecan trees. There is also 50+/- acres of mature hardwoods located behind the Pillars for walking trails, horseback riding and hunting. The Pillars is a very important historical structure that was included in the 1934 Historic American Building Survey and is one of 37 historic structures listed on the National Register of Historic Homes in Lowndesboro.
