Folsom Birthplace

James Elisha (Big Jim) Folsom, a resident of Elba, Coffee County, served as the 45th and 47th Governor of Alabama. Folsom lived in this home from 1908 to 1910 when it was located near the Folsom Mill Creek and Tabernacle communities. The Folsom family continued to own the house until local officials received it and relocated it to this site in 2002. The house, a good example of a late 19th century farmhouse, is listed in the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage.
