I'm rather disappointed. "Iconic Houses" doesn't include the Pittock Mansion.

I thought it had a rather unique architecture, but I'm no expert and perhaps it doesn't rise to the level of "significant". (Or maybe the person who created the list has never heard of it.)

I know Tuscaloosa isn't known for its architecture (though we do have a couple of antebellum homes open to the public), but certainly there's something somewhere in the entire southeastern US.
