The Bettie Hunter House is a historic home in Mobile, Alabama. It was built in 1878 for Bettie Hunter, a notable resident of the city of Mobile, who managed to succeed despite being a former slave.

Bettie Hunter was a former slave who tried her hand out in the hack and carriage business. She operated the venture with her brother, Henry, and it was quite a success. The house, completed a year after Hunter?s death, also became notable for its architecture. It is best noted for being comparable with the white-owned residences in the city.

The Bettie Hunter House is a part of the African American Heritage Trail. It is also a part of the National Register of Historic Places.
