The Dry Fork Plantation is a historic home in Coy, Alabama. It was built around 1832 to 1834 in the vernacular interpretation of the Federal style. It was built by two slaves known as Hezekiah and Elijah, for James Asbury Tait, a Georgia native.

The Dry Fork Plantation is best noted for its architectural significance, being an excellent example of the late Federal style double-pile house. It had four separate rooms in its two-story wood-frame structure. The original features of the house were recorded in Tait?s daybook, detailing the number of each material needed to complete the house.

The Dry Fork Plantation was restored in 1998 by Tait?s descendant (great-great grandson) James Edwin Tait and wife, Gale. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999 and is currently available for tours.
