About us:

Arlington Antebellum Home and Garden is a terrific decorative arts museum featuring a fine collection of 19th century furniture, textiles, silver and paintings. The house was built by Judge William S. Mudd, one of the ten founders of Birmingham, exhibits Greek Revival architecture from the early 19th century and offers beautiful gardens and a restored garden tearoom for weddings and special events. Said to be the site where Union troops planned the burning of the University of Alabama, the home offers an intriguing history along with its grand beauty. It lies a mile and a half west of downtown Birmingham, just south of McLendor Park

If you have never been to Arlington for one of their Thursday lunches or Evening dinners, put this on your things to do in Birmingham list. Their in-house chef creates unique three-course meals for each event. The food is delicious, the company delightful, and the staff is dedicated. To top it all off, the price is reasonable and includes a tour of the historic antebellum home. Better all around experience than any other restaurant in the area.

The Arlington is picturesque and historical land mark in Birmingham. The staff enjoys sharing it's history and introducing guests to the home. Events are held throughout the year providing opportunities and entertainment.

Gates were open when we came, cars were parked in the employee, parking lot, but the ticket building wasnt open, and I didnt see anything on Facebook or their website that would indicate they were closed. While we waited other visitors showed up and eventually left, too. The grounds and building looked really nice though. I just wish we could have know they were closed before we drove from Pelham.
