The Marks House, Pike Road, Alabama, Circa 1825

The Marks House was built between 1825 and 1830 by William Matthews Marks, the son of Nicholas Meriwether Marks. Dr. H. B. “Woody” Bartlett bought it in 1957. A “Thanksgiving Visitor” starring Truman Capote was filmed here in 1957. Dr. Bartlett has consented for the Community to use it as a community center without charge resulting in this landmark is being preserved.


Thank you all for continuing to follow and like the Pike Road Arts & Crafts Fair website and Facebook pages. Representatives of the historic Marks House are on a hiatus this year of 2017, but please continue to follow us for very exciting news in the early part of 2018! Please understand that the Marks House, the Pike Road Civic Club and the Pike Road Community Club are in NO WAY affiliated with ANY arts and crafts fairs that are being held in 2017.

Again, thank you for your loyalty and patience as we regroup to plan to better serve our beautiful community of Pike Road, Alabama.
