The Cuba Plantation is a historic house in Faunsdale, Alabama. Its roots go way back to 1850, when it was built to serve as an overseer?s house for this plantation, owned by Andrew Pickens Calhoun, a local planter who is also the son of John C. Calhoun, best known for being the seventh Vice President of the United States.

The Cuba Plantation was Calhoun?s second plantation. He takes primary residence at the nearby Tulip Hill. This is why this plantation house started out as a very modest structure, with just one story to it. When it was sold off in 1863, it was expanded by the new owner, Tristram Bethea. Mostly, the then new owners enlarged the ground floor and added a second story.

Today, the Cuba Plantation is a US Historic District. It was also added to the National Register of Historic Places.
