The Bride?s Hill is a historic house in Wheeler, Alabama. It is best noted for being one of Alabama?s oldest surviving and most important examples of the Tidewater-type cottage. This kind of architecture became quite a thing in the state when early settlers from the Tidewater and Piedmont regions of Virginia brought the style in their new home.

The Bride?s Hill was built in 1830. It is believed that it was constructed by and for someone from the Dandridge family, best known for being cousins of the United State?s first First Lady, Martha Washington. However, this is still unsubstantiated until now.

Also known as Sunnybrook, the Bride?s Hill is currently a part of the National Register of Historic Places and the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage.
