Gaineswood is an important example of Greek Revival architecture that exemplifies the Black Belt’s significance in Alabama’s economic and cultural history. Once the center of a large plantation, the main house and other surviving structures now lie within the borders of the town of Demopolis. Today operated as a museum by the Alabama Historical Commission, Gaineswood was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1974.
