The three-story grand Tudor home known as the Big House was the home of original members of the Allman Brothers Band and their old ladies, kids, and roadies from 1970 to 1973.

Along with the gardens, fountains and fish pond, the circa-1900 house had stained glass windows and a ballroom on the third floor. The sunroom became the music room. The rent for the estate at the time was just $225 a month.

Sadly, it was the last place Duane Allman was seen by loved ones at a birthday party just before he died in a motorcycle accident. A year later, band member Berry Oakley also died nearby in a motorcycle accident. The publicity surrounding the deaths led to the eviction of the remaining residents from the Big House.

The home is now the Allman Brothers Band Museum and is available for rental for events and parties. In 1994, the house also provided the initial rehearsal space and launch point for Allmans offshoot band Gov't Mule.
