Welcome to the Jackson-McCrory-Ellis House on Main Street in historic Greensboro, Alabama. This quintessential small town, population 2500 and known as the Catfish Capital of Alabama, is located in West Central Alabama in the heart of the area known as The Black Belt, originally named for its rich dark soil. This area became home to King Cotton which brought with it not only a history of wealth and architecture, but also a story of generations of people overcoming the darkest of adversities.

Greensboro is not only known for its numerous historical homes and civil rights history, but also has been blessed with the presence of Rural Studio, an off-campus design build program of Auburn University that has changed the Hale County landscape with it's unique approach to architectural design. In addition, Hale County is a world renowned whitetail deer hunting destination, a nationally recognized birding sanctuary and home to the M. Barnett Lawley Forever Wild Field Trial Area (FWFTA). There is even a skate board park funded by the Tony Hawk Foundation!

There is something to do for everyone of all ages and interests. Small towns can be sometimes difficult to navigate with their odd store hours and traditions, so let us help you navigate your stay for the best Black Belt Experience. Also, being only 40 minutes from Tuscaloosa and The University of Alabama, this is the perfect location for those who enjoy the game but don't enjoy the insanity of Gameday weekend in Tuscaloosa.

Hey, y’all. We are the Ellis Family. It was me, Holly Crawford Ellis, that “encouraged” my family of 4 to take a leap of faith and purchase an almost 140 year old home 3.5 hours away from our present hometown of Huntsville, Alabama. My husband always loved Greensboro, so the sell wasn’t hard for him, but you can imagine how excited my children, Park, 18, and Lucy, 16, were to have an old vacation home in a 2 stoplight town of 2500 people. Why Greensboro? I was raised on the east end of Main Street right across the street from the iconic water tower emblazoned with a giant catfish, and even though I left over 30 years ago to attend college and raise my family, Greensboro never left me...or my heart. Whenever I am asked “Where ya from?”, I inevitably answer “Greensboro, the catfish capital of Alabama and the heart of the Black Belt” even though I have been living in Huntsville for the last 20 years! There’s just something about this place that keeps calling me home, and this time it stuck. In June of 2018, a good friend and local small business owner in Greensboro, Buzzy Barnette, called and asked for my advise on placing a mural on Main Street. You see, my first job out of college was serving as the first paid Executive Director of The Alabama Catfish Festival. One of my first projects in this role was to install a billboard on the corner of Main Street. This billboard was meant to be a semipermanent solution (only meant to last about 5-7 years) to advertise the annual festival. Some 25 years later, the old and dilapidated board was still there...but barely. It was definitely time for an upgrade, especially considering the once highly attended festival experience was no longer an annual event. Fortunately, through my years of community service throughout the state, I had connected with an amazingly talented muralist in North Alabama, Donald Walker. Donald and I collaborated with the Greensboro Area Business and Tourism Association (GABTA) to create a design worthy of the iconic Catfish Festival wall on the corner of Highway 69 South and Main Street. This mural project ALSO set the wheels in motion for me to finally follow my dream and start my own t-shirt company, and Black Belt & Main was born (go to b (Website hidden by Airbnb) for more information). The mural project moved quickly, but over the month of sleeping in friends guest rooms and reliving old friendships, it became very clear I was being called home. I was truly homesick and wanted to be a part of my hometown again . By the end of the summer, my husband, Jeff, and I had purchased one of my favorite homes on Main Street from a good friend and the journey has led to sharing my amazing hometown via AIRBNB. Of coarse, that was an interesting conversation when we told my parents, who had sold our family home 6 years prior to join us in Huntsville (another amazing town). I think they are still shaking their heads, but they truly are our biggest supporters in this leap of faith as this has been home to the Crawford Clan for over 6 generations. Did I mention this house is old? Built in 1880 (we just discovered last week it is 9 years older than we originally thought!), it’s a continuous work in progress, but very comfortable and ready to share so others can find out why the Black Belt is such a great place to call home. Jeff and I have always been creative and “handy”, but this project has forced us to roll up our sleeves and learn new skills, especially Jeff! I could write another 2 pages about our adventures in restoration! We hope to share some of these hilarious stories with you during your visit. Chip and Johanna make it look too easy!! So, this is our story. We look forward to meeting you and making you a part of our story as well. If you don’t know this already, ALL ROADS LEAD TO THE BLACK BELT, and we are glad it led you to 1704 Main Street!

We aim to make your stay in Greensboro a remarkable experience that leaves you longing for a simpler life only available through small town living in "the Boro".
Need something extra that you do not see listed...just ask! Also, I LOVE to put together tours/travel itineraries for the area. The Black Belt might be a bunch of small towns, but sometimes these can be the most difficult to navigate. Let me help show you all there is to love about the area.
