The Stephenson House was built in 1887 in Oakman, Alabama. The Eastlake style house is one of the oldest houses in town, built for Dr. Hugh Watson Stephenson using purchased stock plans. Stephenson was a prominent local physician and state legislator. The house retains its period detailing and intricate carving.[2]

The 1-1/2 story house features elaborate scrollwork on the gables and the front porch. A turret rises from a low dormer over the front door. The house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on September 18, 1978.[1]
