The Dr. A.M. Brown House is a house in Birmingham, Alabama, built c. 1908. It was designed by W.A. Rayfield, one of the first African-American architects in Alabama for Dr. Arthur McKinnon Brown, one of the first African-American physicians in Birmingham.[2]

The house is a 1+12-story bungalow-style building with a deep porch across the front and sides supported by rusticated concrete block pillars. The ground floor walls are constructed in a similar fashion. A broad front dormer has a balcony projecting forward with a small pediment over the entrance.[2]

The Brown House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 20, 1974.[1]
