Fiddler’s Green is the home of Chris and Heather Dempsey. The home is also available for private tours by appointment, weddings, photography sessions, both inside and out, as well as other venues throughout the year.
Fiddler’s Green hosts the annual Skirmish in the Valley civil war reenactment each year on the first full weekend of May. This upcoming year will be our 10th annual!
Fiddler’s Green is a home of new construction! Chris and Heather have always appreciated old homes and architecture. During the process of building their home, a unique opportunity arose. In their hometown of Jacksonville, AL, a local house was being razed that was the former home of Confederate Colonel Samuel H. Lockett.
Col. Lockett’s house was built in 1855. Chris and Heather were allowed to collect all of the mid-Victorian architecture from this house to use in the building of theirs. This included heart pine floors, doors, doorways, door trim, baseboards, staircase, door hardware, mantles, and other pieces of importance. Thanks to this find, Fiddler’s Green is a new home dressed with the trimmings of a nineteenth century, pre-civil war dwelling. Step inside the home, room by room, through this web site and explore what is known as “Fiddler’s Green.”
