Montgomery native, Ashley DuBose Ledbetter, whose grandfather, Parker Narrows, played a big role in the design of the Grove Court Apartments, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places - NPS. “This project was one of the first projects that he did here in Montgomery, and this started a career in doing different housing developments throughout the country,” Ledbetter said to a reporter with WSFA-TV. “He served on the Federal Housing Administration for the United States at a certain time in his career and enjoyed creating these types of developments for families both here in Montgomery and abroad.” The Alabama Historical Commission and other SHPOs help preserve historic building that help tell the story of America.
Ashley Ledbetter’s grandfather Parker A. Narrows was one of the original architects when the apartments were built in 1947.
