The Story of Southern Accents Architectural Antiques

main_warehouse

In 1969, Dr. Garlan Gudger began saving architectural odds and ends from buildings that were to be razed in the Cullman, Alabama area.  As news spread about Dr. Gudger’s collection, he began inviting people to come on Saturdays to see his salvaged collection, which he stashed in his garage. He eventually moved his inventory to a store in Cullman,  and Southern Accents Architectural Antiques was born.

According to their website, Dr. Gudger’s business is now known as the “South’s largest collection of architectural antiques.”

Southern Accents Architectural Antiques is one of my favorite places to visit and is worth a road trip to Cullman, Alabama.
