The Kerby House, also known as the Randolph Plantation, is a historic Greek Revival plantation house and historic district in Prairieville, Alabama, USA. This area of Hale County was included in Marengo County before the creation of Hale in 1867.[2] The Kerby House was built in 1850 by the Randolph family. The main block is a one-story structure with a five-bay facade. A one-story wing joins the main block on the eastern side. The central bay is covered by a pedimented portico, supported by four simple box columns. The entrance door surround is in the Greek Revival-style. It is included in the Plantation Houses of the Alabama Canebrake and Their Associated Outbuildings Multiple Property Submission.[3] The property was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 07, 1994, due to its architectural and historical significance.[1]
