J. L. M. Curry Home

J. L. M. Curry House was a home of Jabez Lamar Monroe Curry, a lawyer, politician, and educator who "did more than any one other man to encourage the expansion and improvement of the public school system and the establishment of training schools for teachers throughout the south. He was also largely responsible for convincing Southern legislators of the states' responsibility for public education."

The house was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965.

It is located about 3 miles east of the center of Talladega, on Highway 21.
