Edith Newman Culver
Memorial Museum

— 1872~1995 —

The Newman House was restored and presented in 1995 to the citizens of Waterloo by Ezra Lee Culver, as a memorial to his wife, Edith Elizabeth Newman Culver. Built in 1872 by Hiram L. and Julia Ann Young Richardson. This house was purchased in 1918 by Joseph Newman, a native of Ohio and U.S. veteran of the Civil War. His son, Clarkson Lytle Newman with his wife, Eunice Lindsey Newman, became the next owners. Their daughter, Edith, was reared here from her childhood until her marriage. The house remained in the Newman family until its dedication as a museum on October 14, 1995.

Erected by Florence Historical Board Florence Alabama.
