This image is a watercolor painting of an American house located on the Stone-Young Plantation (also known as the Stone-Young-Baggett House) in Montgomery, Alabama done by Brendon A. Bond sometime between 1940 and 1942. The mansion was built in 1840. The painting shows the front exterior of the house with its brick walls, doors, windows, shutters, two-story columned porch, steps, iron balcony, flat roof and chimneys surrounded by trees and landscaping. There are a women and a man on the porch and and a woman at the base of the steps, all in period dress. The house is placed within framing art and text showing and describing its architectural features including the iron balcony railing, the roof and the molding under it, side and top views of a column, a floor plan, a side view of the house, a map of the plantation, a map of the southeastern United States showing its location, and carved woodwork. In the lower right corner, there is a handwritten inscription "1st Mention" and the artist's information block which reads: "Brendon A. Bond, Ala. Polytech. Inst., Archaeology no. II, An American House." The painting is in fair condition with small pieces missing from the edges and is encapsulated.
