Also known as the Scott-Yarbrough House, the Pebble Hill is a historic home in Auburn, Alabama. This antebellum cottage was built in 1846 by Nathaniel J. Scott as a centerpiece of his 100-acre plantation.

The Pebble Hill also saw its fair share of the Civil War tragedies, but luckily, it escaped the era intact. After the war, it was sold off by Scott until in 1912, when it was acquired by Cecil S. Yarbrough, a former Auburn mayor and state representative. The property stayed in the Yarbrough family until 1974. The Auburn Heritage Association acquired it by then and restored it. They donated it to the Auburn University in 1985, who transformed it into the Center for the Caroline Marshall Draughon Arts & Humanities.
