“overlooking the Apalachicola River”

Built in 1838 by Thomas Orman, this antebellum home overlooks the Apalachicola River, and was used for both business and social gatherings. Orman was a cotton merchant and businessman in Apalachicola from 1834 to the 1880s. He helped the tiny town become one of the Gulf Coast’s most important cotton exporting ports during the mid-19th century. The house features details of both Federal and Greek revival styles with wooden mantelpieces, molded plaster cornices and wide heart-pine floorboards. The house is open Thursday through Monday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day (Eastern Time Zone) and closed Tuesday and Wednesday. Guided tours are offered hourly, except noon. Visit the adjoining Chapman Botanical Garden, which honors Dr. Alvin Chapman. Enjoy the butterfly garden, other botanical features, walkways and open spaces. Also enjoy the Three Soldiers Detail, a bronze replica of the Vietnam memorial statue in Washington, D.C. Annual special events include Apalachicola Historic Tour of Homes in May and Historic Christmas in November. Other events and ranger programs are available. Located in Apalachicola, off U.S. 98.
