The James M. Calhoun Law Office in Heritage Village is a replica of U.S. Senator and Secretary of State John C. Calhoun's law office.
James was John's nephew, and John was a powerful politician from South Carolina and one of "The Great Triumvirate" in the 1830s and 1840s. James became a lawyer and planter in Dallas County, Alabama, and served in the state House of Representatives and Senate.
This one-room, Greek Revival structure was built in the 1830s and moved here from the little town of Carlowville.
