Auburn’s Pebble Hill House Reopens after Renovations

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – The historic Pebble Hill house used for tours and education about the history of Auburn has been reopened after renovations.

The Opelika-Auburn News reports (http://bit.ly/1N1tXer ) that the historic Scott-Yarbrough House was built in 1847. The Auburn University’s Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities celebrated the grand reopening Tuesday along with the center’s 30th anniversary as an outreach office for the College of Liberal Arts.

Pebble Hill sits on its original site at the end of Magnolia Avenue. The house was also used to show the contributions of the center’s namesake, Caroline Marshall Draughon.

The house was given to Auburn University in 1985 by Auburn Bank and the Auburn Heritage Association, which still holds board meetings at Pebble Hill.

A gift from Ann Draughon Cousins, Caroline Marshall Draughon’s daughter, helped complete the project.
