The George Coulter House (also known as Mapleton) is a historic house located at 420 South Pine Street in Florence, Alabama.
Description and history
The house was built in about 1827 by George Coulter, a planter, lawyer, and soldier originally from Middle Tennessee. During the Civil War, the house was used as a command post by Union Army Colonel John Marshall Harlan, partially due to its location on a hillside overlooking downtown and the Tennessee River. The house was later owned by W. W. Slaton, who renovated the house in the late 1940s, adding a wing that was originally used as medical offices. The frame house is designed in Federal style, with Adamesque woodwork throughout the interior. Narrow two-level porticoes with Tuscan order columns on the north and south faces were replaced in the 1940s by porticoes with a pair of square columns and a central balcony. The original brick kitchen was formerly connected to the house via a covered breezeway which has since been enclosed.
