Also known as the Countryside, the Tait-Ervin House is a historic plantation home located in Camden, Alabama. It was built in 1855 by the builder Henry Cook for Robert Tait. It is best noted for both its architectural value and its association with locally prominent individuals.

For example, the original owner of the property, Robert Tait, was the grandson of a former US Senator from Georgia, Charles Tait. After the Civil War, the Tait-Ervin House was acquired by Robert?s sister, Sarah Ashbury Tait Ervin and husband Dr. Robert Hugh Ervin. Dr. Ervin was also a noted politician, serving the Alabama Legislature and the state senate.

The Tait-Ervin House stayed in the family until 1991. It was then subsequently sold off to the Phillipi family and then listed to the National Register of Historic Places.
