Ian Crawford gave a tour of the Jemison-Van de Graaff Mansion and talked about the impact of the Civil War on the Jeminson family and the nearly 20 slaves who maintained the home. Built by Senator Robert Jeminson, Jr., from 1859-1862, the technologically advanced, Italianate structure was the first home in Alabama with a built-in bathtub and running water.
