Built from 1844–46 for Amos Travis, a native of Georgia. It is a major contributing property to the Gainesville Historic District.
Aduston Hall was built as a summer home for Amos Travis from 1844 to 1846. Travis, a resident of Mobile, used the house as a refuge from the heat, humidity, and disease that plagued Mobile during the summer months. The property was a largely self-sufficient plantation complex. Five 19th century outbuildings remain at the site.
